Kristin DiBiase has been empowering students in higher education for over 15 years. While earning her J.D. with a concentration in Alternative Dispute Resolution at Valparaiso University, she led the law school student body as president of the Student Bar Association and vice president of the Black Law Students Association.
After passing the bar, Kristin worked in academics for the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) for more than a decade, analyzing student academic progress, developing learning strategies and educational programming, and advocating for students with ADHD and learning disabilities. Her love of working with students led her to join Indiana University McKinney School of Law as the program’s Associate Director of Academic and Bar Success.
After synthesizing her expertise from those experiences, Kristin founded Your Law School Coach, an academic consulting service. In her mission to level the playing field for law students of color, first-gens and students with ADHD in their pursuit of the legal profession, she combines learning science and coaching to lead them to classroom and bar exam success. She also specializes in professional coaching for attorneys with ADHD.
Kristin is a professional member of the American Bar Association (ABA), Association of Academic Support Educators (AASE), Attention Deficit Disorder Association (ADDA), and Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD). Outside of her work with students, she is a classically trained singer, an avid moviegoer and a major Disney fan. She and her husband are the proud pet parents of a normal-size cat and a gigantic dog.
