We had the good fortune of connecting with Jenni Brown and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jenni, as a parent, what do you feel is the most meaningful thing you’ve done for them?
I’m a parent of two children. One boy and one girl. As a business owner and female leader in the community, it is important to me that both children know they can follow their dreams regardless of their gender. Specifically, I teach both children that they are not limited in their options of careers or goals because they are male or female. Currently, my daughter wants to be an architect and my son wants to build commercial buildings.
Keep in mind they are seven and five and their career goals change daily. However, through my experience as a business owner, the growth of my law firm, and connections in the community, I will continue to teach them to follow their dreams and not limit themselves to a specific career path just because society might say they are not capable.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
What sets Brown Dutton & Crider Law Firm apart from others is the personal experience we provide to each client. No one wants to go through a divorce or any family law matter but we strive to have them finish litigation with the realization that their attorney was right beside them the entire time. That they never felt alone or scared.
I would not be where I am today had I not worked for all of my prior employers prior to opening Brown Dutton & Crider. I try to be a sponge and soak up as much information as possible and always continue to learn from others. I continue learning from my team and value the opinion of each member of our staff. I have learned that culture is probably the most important thing to a productive work environment.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Wow this is a hard question. Atlanta and the surrounding area has so much to offer! I would try to do a little of everything. Go for a hike on Kennesaw Mountain, check out the staples of Atlanta like Coca-Cola Factory and the Aquarium, have drinks at the Sun Dial followed by dinner at Canoe Atlanta. If the visitor had kids I would make sure we went to Lake Point Station!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I could not be where I am today without the love and support of my family growing up. I have five brothers and I am the only girl in my family. I was the first woman in my family to not only go to law school but to also finish college. My parents raised me to believe that I can be anything I want and that if there are limits on my success the only place to look is in the mirror. My parents continue to support me in every new venture I take.
