Dr. Coleman is also a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army Reserve assigned to a Forward Surgery Team, having deployed in 2016 and 2018 to support operations in the Middle East. She is keenly interested in physician well-being and specifically resiliency given her background in military service and surgical education. Her clinical interests include the surgical and endovascular management of aneurysmal and occlusive thoracoabdominal aortic and mesenteric vascular disease and the surgical revascularization of pediatric aortic coarctation and renovascular hypertension. Her longstanding interest in the management of children with developmental aortic coarctation and renovascular hypertension has fueled ongoing translational research interests that focus on the genetic basis of pediatric renovascular hypertension resulting from developmental arterial dysplasia.
