One of the most successful female surgeons in the United States is returning to her hometown to work. Jennifer Walden is one of the most noted and recognized beauty surgeons in the field. Add to that the fact that she is a woman in an extremely male-dominated area and she sticks out even more. She is setting up shop in her hometown of Austin, TX to bring her expertise and experience to patients in that area.
She also attended college in the city of Austin. She received her undergraduate degree there and then attended medical school as well. Her road to medical school was exactly lined with roses, though. She was wait-listed at first and wasn’t immediately admitted into the school. Once she was, she wanted to prove to the officials that they made a mistake. Walden did just that by graduating from medical school as the salutatorian of the class.
While she was in medical school she decided upon plastic surgery as her field of expertise as a surgeon. She has said that she enjoys the artistry of being a plastic surgeon. She also loved the immediate results that it provided. She moved from Texas after her schooling as she received her residency assignment.
Her residency was in Manhattan in New York City at a very reputable hospital. This hospital was the Manhattan Eye, Ear, Nose, and Throat Hospital. There are only 2 residents chosen each year nationwide and she was chosen as one of them.
One the reasons that she chose to move back to Austin is to be closer to her family as she is raising her own family. She was a dedicated career woman in her 20s and early 30s. She then shifted some of the focus onto her personal life and decided to create some more balance in her life by having children. She gave birth to twin boys in November of 2010 via In-Vitro pregnancy.
Austin is very lucky to have a such a skilled and experienced surgeon working there. She should be an inspiration to some as she has moved back to her hometown and restarted her practice from the ground up. She should be the first choice of anyone that is considering plastic surgery.
