Dr. Coleman felt the call to veterinary medicine from a young age. She received her B.S. in Animal Pathobiology from the University of Connecticut and went on to serve in the United States Peace Corps/Guatemala in Integrated Animal Systems. When she returned from service, she landed in the Seattle area. She became a licensed veterinary technician and worked for many area hospitals, including Lien. Her lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian became reality in May 2016 when she earned her DVM from Washington State University. She joined the staff of Lien Animal Clinic in June 2016. She and her husband live on the Eastside where they are owned by their furries – 2 Shiba Inus and 3 cats.
