Jennifer L. Schulte - Ayo and Iken, PLC photoGrowing up locally in the Lake Mary area, near Orlando, I always had dreams of being a lawyer in high school. But life sometimes takes you down a different path than you imagined in getting where you want to be. After high school, I became a single mom at nineteen. While I went to work to support my child, my mother died a year a later. It was devastating. I continued bartending and server jobs to make ends meet working two or three jobs seven days a week. Doing that I quickly realized I was going nowhere without an education. I remembered my dream of being a lawyer and had recently had a good experience with an attorney and it just clicked with me that it was my calling. I entered a community college and worked as hard as I could. It just went from there all the way through law school. I think my experiences have made me very sensitive to the sacrifices people make for their children. I went to law school as a single mom so I know you don’t know what you are capable of until you have no other choice than to make what you want happen. I believe tapping into my life experience is very valuable because it helps me relate to my clients and what they are going through. I’ve seen life from so many different angles and it helps me relate to all different kinds of people and backgrounds. It’s just that life experience that you bring to the table. When you are a single mom and don’t have an education, people in a lot of situations will take advantage of you and really kind of degrade you. At times you are treated like you don’t matter. That really changed me because I wanted to make sure that I was in a position to help people so they don’t feel intimidated like I did at times. I don’t want them overwhelmed by the justice system. I want to fight for people who don’t have a voice so they don’t feel so beat up by the process.
