Christine Kiefer of the Kiefer Law Office was recently featured in the Columbia Business Times’ Women in Business. Women in Business highlights some of Columbia’s most influential women in business and community. Get ready to meet some amazing powerhouses in this special section:
What is your area of expertise? Workers’ compensation and social security disability law.
What’s your own personal mantra? A friend told me: “You have to be single-minded about things. Deflect, deflect, deflect!” This has helped me stay focused, to ward off things that keep me from moving forward.
What accomplishment are you most proud of? I went to law school at night while working a full-time job with two children at home. I have never been more driven than I was during those years.
What do you think is the most significant barrier to female leadership? Being apologetic for our opinions, ashamed of our voice, or afraid of being called names for being strong and assertive.
