Hayley (Norpel) Coffas, daughter of Steve and Beth Norpel of Bellevue and a 2010 graduate of Bellevue High School, is currently among the top 20 Master’s Degree Students at Ohio State University.
She was recently featured in the university’s Fisher College of Business magazine called ‘Poets and Quants,’ along with the 19 other MBA recipients who will graduate in 2020.
Along with the prestigious honor from Ohio State, the Bellevue native was also ranked in the top 20 in the world in competitive powerlifting in her weight class in 2017.
For her undergraduate degree, Coffas graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Plattville with a bachelor of science degree in industrial engineering. While she landed a job as a project engineer for Georgia-Pacific, she chose to go to graduate school to advance her career even further.
Her goal is to become the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of a major company in the United States.
