Dr. Jennifer Walden is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Austin, Texas. Born to parents with a passion for helping others, she found herself dreaming of a career in the medical field. So, it came as no surprise to her family when she graduated high school and earned an undergraduate degree in biology. Shortly after, Dr. Walden applied to medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch where she was initially waitlisted. Determined to achieve her goal, she remained optimistic, and soon graduated salutatorian of her class.
After medical school, Walden was offered a spot in the Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat fellowship program, where she worked under the supervision of some of the most successful plastic surgeons in the industry. She remained at the hospital for nearly eight years before deciding to explore the world of entrepreneurship. With the help of her mentor Sherrell Aston, she successfully opened her owned practice right in the big apple.
Always focused on reaching her goals, Dr. Walden admits that marriage and family were not at the top of her priority list. As the majority of her early years were spent chasing her dreams, family planning just didn’t seem to fit in her plan. Now a successful business woman and plastic surgeon, Dr. Walden realized she was ready to become a mother. With no prospects for marriage, and feeling the pressure to race against time, she began to explore other options for conception.
After three rounds of IVF, Dr. Walden successful conceived. In 2011, she became the proud mother of two beautiful twin boys, Houston and Rex. Having a desire to raise her children in the same close-knit family environment she was raised in, she packed up her sons, closed her practice, and returned to Austin. With the help of a strong and encouraging support system, Dr. Walden opened a new practice in her hometown, where she continues to live out her dream.
