She is a certified StrengthsFinder coach and advocate, training professionals on how to make the most of their unique abilities. 

“I could not be more honored to lead this company,” Coppock says. “At its core, Stelter is a group of innovative, intelligent, creative professionals who care. They are the silent partner to more than one thousand nonprofits around the country doing transformational work. As CEO, I strive to enable our leaders, people and partners to achieve even greater success in fulfilling their passions.”
