What does it take to be known as one of the best surgeons in the United States? One might ask that question to Dr. Jennifer Walden, as she was recently named one of the 24 best beauty surgeons by Harper’s Bazaar Magazine. Being successful in any type of medical care field is difficult because there is so much competition. Factor in trying to balance a professional and successful personal life and it is easy to understand why it can be difficult to come in as a top contender in the beauty surgery field. It seems to come naturally to Dr. Walden, though, as she is known for being a woman who has great balance in her life and who wears many hats on a day-to-day basis.
Not only is she one of the top beauty surgeons in this country, Dr. Jennifer Walden is also a published author. She is one of the only female surgeons to serve on the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery’s board of directors as well. In addition to these professional achievements, along with many others, Dr. Walden also has two children who are fortunate to call this high achieving professional their mother. She has earned a reputation for being in control while still maintaining a warm personality. This is important in any medical field, as patients like to know that a doctor is competent but still capable of being empathetic to their unique needs.
She was born in Austin. Medicine seems to be in her blood, as her late father was a dentist and her mother was a nurse. She grew up with four siblings in an atmosphere where education was always a high priority. As much as she has achieved professionally, Dr. Walden has been known to tell people that being a top surgeon is not as difficult as being a great mother. It is apparent, however, that Jennifer seamlessly does the job of being both a great surgeon and top-tier mom on a daily basis.
Dr. Walden stands out as a professional who should be a role model to women who are looking to get into the medical field or any other profession. She continues to prove that one can excel at their chosen profession while still being successful in other important aspects of life.
