Ms. Kate O'Keefe

Hello! My name is Kate O'Keefe and this is my second year as the College Admissions Specialist at Central VPA. My passion is working with students to find the postsecondary path that is the best match and fit for them. 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 or to set up a virtual appointment! 

Students can add my Remind group by texting the code that correlates to their grade level below to 81010:
