YOUR BUSINESS AUTHORITY
Willard native Kaiti Greenwade opened Greenwade Law Firm in 2010 with her sister, Allison, and she now uses her business to give back to the community where she was raised.
Between owning her family law firm and serving as Dade County prosecutor, Greenwade helps aid many who cannot or don’t know how to help themselves.
As prosecuting attorney, she is the leader of the court’s alternative program for criminal court defendants interested in a rehabilitation program. At her firm, she often represents victims of domestic violence and provides legal services, aiming to give them the voice and strength to change their circumstances.
What was your first job? My family’s ranch taking care of cattle and putting up hay.
How many times do you hit the snooze button? Never. I have a 4-month-old baby!
What’s your most treasured possession? My two rescue dogs.
What historical figure do you identify with most? Harry Truman. He is an enviable example of what a public servant should be. “Work hard. Do your best. Keep your word. Never get too big for your britches. Trust in God. Have no fear; and never forget a friend.”
Have you ever met a celebrity? I met MLB players Bill Virdon and Jerry Lumpe when my grandfather, Tom Greenwade, was being inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame for his career as a scout for the New York Yankees.
