Coffman will oversee the West Virginia, Virginia and Tennessee hardship programs, which provide grant funds for limited-income families needing assistance with their utility bills.

In 2012, Coffman was awarded the Young Professional of the Year Award from the West Virginia chapter of the Public Relations Society of America and through the years has won several Crystal Awards honoring her work in public relations. Recently, Coffman was accepted into the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce Leadership West Virginia class of 2013.
