Kate Coffman, College Counselor

Kate discovered her love for working in higher education as a work study student at Indiana University. She continued at IU for graduate school, completing her masters in Higher Education and Student Affairs. A practicum introduced her to the world of admissions, and she was hooked. Kate has worked in undergraduate and MBA admissions at Indiana University—where she traveled the world recruiting domestically and internationally (Argentina and India are her favorites). She also spent time in undergraduate admissions at Butler University and worked in the non-profit sector helping youth serving organizations better understand college and career readiness. Most recently, she served as the Vice President for Admissions and Financial Aid at Franklin College. Kate loves helping students and their families navigate the college admissions process.

Originally from Staten Island, New York, Kate went to college in Indiana and never left. She lives in Indianapolis with her husband, her bulldog, and two teenage sons. Kate has a lot of empathy for parents as she is in the midst of the college search with her own children. She can often be found cheering them on at basketball or “trying” to follow them on the cross country course. She is an avid reader and theater fan, returning to the east coast often to see family, hit beaches and get good pizza.
