Originally from Memphis, Tennessee, Dr. Coleman earned her doctorate degree from Oklahoma State University. Her internship was with the Munroe Meyer Institute where she worked within a rural integrated care setting by providing individual therapy, parent training, and psychological testing.    

Before joining CHKD, Dr. Coleman completed a fellowship at Nationwide Children’s Hospital where she specialized in addressing and treating severe and challenging behaviors.
