A SNAPSHOT OF OUR HOMEBRED LOCAL GIRL…..

Mimi is one of us.  She was born at Harris Hospital downtown and grew up in White Settlement.  She was Salutatorian of the B.H.S. class of 1987. Her dad Joe Coffey retired from General Dynamics, now Lockheed.  Her mom immigrated to the United States from Hokkaido, Japan after marrying her father. They met when he was stationed in Japan while the in U.S. Army.  She was raised attending Bethel Baptist Church and then Ridglea West Baptist Church on the circle. She is a first generation college graduate.  While in high school, she participated in speech contests to earn scholarship money for college. She placed 2nd and 3rd in the state in the American Legion Oratorical Speech Contest on the Constitution.  She also earned her way to State in UIL for persuasive speaking. Mimi graduated from Baylor University and then went on to finish her law degree at the Texas Tech School of Law.  After her studies were finished she returned home to serve her community.  Mimi has practiced law in the metroplex for over 26 years.  She started the Coffey Firm in 2000 and has since earned a national reputation in her field. Meanwhile, she raised all four of her children in the White Settlement Independent School District.  Like their mom, all four earned their spots on the C.F. Brewer High School wall of Valedictorians and Salutatorians.  Mimi is passionate about helping people.  From scholarships to assisting the W.S.I.S.D Foundation Board, she loves helping children and youth.  Her husband Tony Mancil serves on the W.S.I.S.D. Foundation Board.  She is also a member of the Texas Tech School of Law Foundation Board where she also donates scholarships and funds awards. Among her favorite pastimes, she maintains a boat on Eagle Mountain Lake.  She loves the lake community. She is also a member of Save Eagle Mountain Lake, Inc. Protecting Eagle Mountain Lake for the recreation and pleasure of District 99 constituents is important.
