Dr. Jennifer Walden was privileged to be recognized as a finalist in Austin Business Journal’s 2012 Profiles in Power Awards which acknowledges Austin’s most influential businesswomen!
Many may know Dr. Walden as an American Board of Plastic Surgery certified and fellowship-trained cosmetic surgeon, however Dr. Walden is also proud to be a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, vice chairman of media relations for the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons. Aside from publishing many articles and co-authoring a textbook, Dr. Walden also is a consultant to breast implant companies, including Allergan Medical and has also volunteered on medical missions with Austin Smiles, providing cleft lip and palate surgery to infants with congenital defects.
When asked what factors have helped or hindered her career, Dr. Walden said working in a male-dominated field has served more as an incentive to excel than a hindrance. Dr. Walden believes women generally seek other women to help them enhance their beauty, and that she has successfully created a niche for herself as a female plastic surgeon specializing in the aesthetic needs of women. Aside from all of that, Dr. Walden considers being a mom to her young twin boys her biggest achievement to date!
Congratulations to Dr. Walden for being a featured Profile in Power by Austin Business Journal and to all the other fabulous finalists and winners who proudly represent Central Texas businesswomen!
