Kate Schwarzler


Kate is passionate about creating livable and sustainable communities for rural areas, which utilizes her business, landscape architecture, planning, and natural resource background. She helps clients work on livability issues such as developing thriving main streets, building an entrepreneurial ecosystem, placemaking, parks and recreation, and natural resource management. Kate started Indy Commons to create a shared workspace that supports local business owners and entrepreneurs with the resources they need to succeed and turn their dreams into thriving businesses.



Official greeter, conducts wellness checks, inspects mail carrier and leads daily exercise routines. Gets sleepy in sunny locations, can distract co-workers with opportunities for belly rubs, and is not above using hypnotic eyes to persistently beg for treats.  Can be a bit goofy and highly distracted by anything that squeaks.
