Kate O'Keefe

Hello! My name is Kate O'Keefe and this is my first year as the College Admissions Specialist at Central VPA. I graduated from UMSL in 2017 with a Bachelor of Liberal Studies. I previously served as the College Adviser at Ritenour High School through Missouri College Advising Corps. My passion is helping students find the postsecondary path that fits them best. When I'm not advising students I love to travel, explore St. Louis, and hang out with my sweet cat, Georgia.  

As a first generation college graduate, I know how overwhelming it can be trying to navigate all of the postsecondary options out there. I am here to assist students in planning their next steps whether that be Enrolling in college, Enlisting in the military, or full time Employment. The 3E's! While I work primarily 1 on 1 with Seniors and Juniors, I also work with underclassmen to make sure they are preparing for the years ahead of them. Please feel free to email me with any questions!
