Back Home: Dr. Jennifer Waldren

Dr. Jennifer Walden, a top aesthetic plastic surgeon in her field, has come home to Austin, Texas to further her career and raise her family. Harper’s Bazaar has named her one of the United States 24 best beauty surgeons. She trained with one of the top beauty surgeons in her field, she has opened a successful Manhattan practice, and she is a peer acknowledged leader. She has been named as one of the only women to the board of directors for the American Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Society. She is a published author, media regular, and an award winning surgeon. When she decided to become a single mother, she knew the move back to Austin was the best one possible.

Jennifer Walden’s success comes from her hard work, drive, and compassion. She is described as warm and caring by her patients. They know how busy she is, but she never comes across as rushed to her patients. Before moving to New York, Walden received her formal education and MD from Texas universities. She wanted her large and supportive family around when she raised her two boys. Sometimes, she feels like being a surgeon is easier than being a mom. Kids are unpredictable, and the surgical room is easily controlled.

The move back home came with cost to her career but not for too long. She had to start all over again, and her supportive family played a big role in that. Her practice had to be re-established. This move was not difficult for her because she knew that she was a hard working, over achiever and she would make it happen.

ClassDojo’s Efforts in Making School Workshops a Thing of the Past

The brilliant ingenuity that lies in Class Dojo is allowing parents to be up to date with their children’s progress in school through an interactive and easy to use platform. In building its brand and promoting itself to the market, this brilliant application has launched a new useful tool referred to as Student Stories. In this new tool, a student can upload images and videos to their profiles capturing memorable moments in their routine school days and sharing them with their families back at home.
ClassDojo came about as a means to ensure that parents are in the loop about the nitty gritty of what goes on in schools. In so doing, Student stories have enabled students to capture from a poem recitation in class to finally solving a math problem and sharing their learning experiences with their families.
In the spirit of upholding its easy-to-use interface value, the application allows students to upload their material even without having to submit their login credentials or being in possession of their own individual devices. All they have to do is scan a specific QR code, upload their material and can also comment and tag classmates with whom they were in carrying out their tasks. Content that is added by students must be approved by their class teachers before it is allowed to be sent back home to their parents.
Established in 2011 by co-founders Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don, ClassDojo was formed as a means to reinvent the classroom and bring teachers, students and their parents together. The application serves as a tool for teachers to encourage their students by making the learning environment much appealing and fun. In engaging the students, teachers are able to instill the culture of teamwork persistence and hard work. The application is workable on all Android devices, Kindle Fire, and any computer device.
The application has won favor with numerous teachers and learning institutions having established itself in two of every three schools in the United States. ClassDojo allows students to not only send photos and videos to their parents but also to send instant direct messages. This user-friendly platform also allows for any announcements made to reach the involved parties in only a matter of seconds. In earning the trust of their extensive clientele, the company guarantees the outmost privacy and security of all information and material that is uploaded to the application.

Why Jose Manuel Gonzalez is the Archetype of Good Political Leadership

Jose Manuel González is among the foremost Venezuelan businessmen and political leaders. He currently represents Guárico state in Venezuela’s National Assembly. The legislator has been vocal in speaking out against common problems facing farmers in the impoverished South American nation. His brand of politics is unique and bears close resemblance to his business philosophy. This has made him a legendary figure in the country’s political arena.

In Defense of Farmers

Mr. Gonzalez decries the existing conditions in the Venezuelan agricultural sector. He insists that the political elite is not doing enough to subsidize the price of farm inputs. In as much as agriculture is the country’s mainstay, the sector is still largely untapped. Whatever is being produced is way below the country’s capacity. The lack on agricultural exports denies the country a lot of foreign exchange.

According to the farmer cum politician, there has been little commitment on the government’s part to ensure that the agricultural sector is stabilized. The National Assembly has failed to pinpoint the inherent problems faced by farmers. The fragile coalition government has even worsened the situation. This is because there are more bureaucratic processes, which have made decision-making quite difficult. Leaders no longer address the plight of farmers through a common voice.

Poor leadership has aggravated insecurity in the country. Farmers continue to suffer most since hundreds of them have been falling victim to gangland-style kidnappers. Kidnapping incidents have particularly escalated in regions that have high agricultural potential. Carjacking’s have also become a norm. Mr. Gonzalez asserts that the government needs to stamp its authority and wipe out the current wave of crime in the country.

Important Notes about Jose Manuel Gonzalez

Jose is one of the most successful Venezuelan agricultural entrepreneurs. He hails from agriculturally rich Guárico province. This explains why he has been fervent in championing the rights of farmers. In the National Assembly where he serves as a deputy, he has distinguished himself as an articulate and well-informed debater who has the interest of the people at heart. He has played an important role in the passage of numerous legislative bills. His down to earth personality has endeared him to masses. He is currently running for Guárico state’s governorship.

The Story of Helane Morrison Breaking The Glass Ceiling

In the world of business, people often visualize executives as men wearing suits and ties and talking into cellphones as they enter elevators or the public. The people who visualize these images are correct. However what is often overlooked, or not commonly visualized, is that executives are also women. This story is about a woman who had a long sustained career in law and government that ultimately led her into the business world. Helane Morrison currently holds three positions at Hall Capital Partners LLC: Managing Director, General Counsel, and Chief Compliance Officer.

Prior to Morrison joining Hall Capital Partners LLC in 2007, she began her career in law. Xrepublic.net reports that after Morrison passed the bar exam in the 1980s, she was hired as a law clerk for the Hon. Richard Posner of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh District in 1984. A year later in 1985, Morrison was hired as a law clerk for the Hon. Harry Blackmun of the U.S. Supreme Court. As in her previous job, Morrison left her job as a law clerk after a year and joined the law firm Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Rabkin. She joined them in 1986. During her tenure at the law firm, Morrison was made partner in 1991 and stayed on at the firm for another five years.

Morrison departed from the firm in 1996 to take a job offer at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). She was offered the job based on the work she focused on during her time at the Howard firm because it dealt primarily matters relating to the SEC. Morrison was a regional director at the SEC and during her tenure, she scored notable achievements. These achievements include: contributing to the efforts to eradicate insider trading, exposing the illegal destruction of audit papers by auditors working as partners for companies, and much more.

2007 was the year Morrison left the SEC and joined the law firm Hall Capital Partners LLC. Morrison left the SEC because she wanted to fight for financial sector equality based on the lack of females holding leadership positions in the financial sector. The career of Helane Morrison serves as an example of personal resilience and ambition for fighting for the ideas she held dear to her heart. I have no doubt Morrison will continue to serve as inspiration for women in the years to come.
