Mickey Coleman graduated from Warren Wilson in 1978. Mickey's original dream was to study medicine. But after a semester on the Gym Crew, she transferred to the farm with the idea of pursuing veterinary medicine, and she graduated with a major in biology. She often said the practical experience she gained on the college farm gave her a good background and helped her a great deal in her lab and class work at vet school. In her home community of Hendersonville, North Carolina, Mickey has served on the Habitat for Humanity board of directors and volunteers with local schools in career development for students interested in veterinary medicine. For the past several years Mickey has devoted her time and talents to Remote Veterinary Services, an organization that donates veterinary services on Native American reservations throughout the United States.
