As Arrowhead Landfill’s Office Manager, Michelle is essential to ensuring that the Landfill’s day-to-day operations run smoothly. She oversees truck transit, accounts payable, and payroll while also greeting visitors and facilitating community activities.
Michelle grew up in Orrville, Alabama with her mother, Laura Merchant and three siblings. She graduated from Keith High School and went on to earn an Associate Degree in Business and Administration, Bachelor Degree in Human Resource Management, and a Masters Degree in Post-Secondary Education. After working for the Selma Times, Michelle began working for Arrowhead Landfill in December of 2014.
“At first I was just looking for a job”, says Coleman. “I didn’t know I was signing on to be part of a family.”
Michelle also has a family of her own. She is married to Arthur Coleman, and have been for 14 years. She has two sons, Kendarious (19) and LaDaroius (17), and a daughter named Chantavia (14). Spending time together is her family’s priority, whether it is traveling, attending church, seeing movies, eating dinner, or just barbecuing in the backyard.
While on the job, Michelle enjoys meeting new people and working with the Uniontown, Alabama community. She believes Arrowhead serves as a value to the community by providing well-paying jobs and free backpacks for local students. “The landfill site is as nice as could be and there isn’t even an odor,” says Coleman.
Michelle is very passionate about her religious faith and serves as the Youth Director President at the First Baptist Church of Orrville. On her own time, she enjoys traveling, shopping, and doing yard work around her home.
