Kelly Coker

Chief Operating and Program Officer

Since graduating from DePauw University, I’ve spent my entire career in the nonprofit sector. I’ve worked both for organizations focused on supporting those experiencing homelessness and those focused on education. Brightlane Learning combines these two passions. I love the partnership aspect of Brightlane Learning’ model, and am committed to working with our partners to support the mission of providing academic support to students experiencing homelessness and their families.

Education paired with the type of supportive relationships provided by Brightlane Learning and our partners can have life-changing results. Through education, students learn critical thinking, are exposed to different worldviews, and learn empathy and care.
