“As a woman, a mother and a proud Hispanic Republican, I will bring a unique, personal perspective to the Indiana Senate,” Coble stated. “As an attorney with both business and municipal government experience, I have a successful, professional background built on finding solutions in the private and public sectors. As a resident of this district for the past 22 years, I understand the needs of this community and will always work in its best interest.”
As a parent of a child with special needs, Coble has been a strong advocate for the disability community by serving as the co-chair of the Fishers Advisory Committee on Disability.
Coble received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Arizona and holds a J.D. from the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis.

She is a former co-chair of the Indiana Chapter of The Autism Community in Action, and a former board member of the Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities and the Bev Hartig Huntington’s Disease Foundation.
“My current and past involvement within our community demonstrates that ‘service’ is one of my strong core beliefs,” Coble stated. “I would be honored to bring this passion to the Statehouse on behalf of everyone who lives here in District 31.”
Coble is married to Mike, and they have two daughters, Alexa and Crysta. Coble enjoys the performing arts and traveling with her family.
