Mitch Mitchell

I am the newly appointed Prevention and Outreach Specialist here at Hepatitis Education Project (HEP). I moved from San Diego, CA 6 years ago after receiving a BS in Biology from Northern Arizona University (go Lumberjacks!), and have enjoyed my experience here so far. I’m honored to be a part of an organization that is committed to the public health and welfare of Seattle. In this role, I perform outreach with a team to folks around the city about practices that may help prevent the diagnosis and spread of hepatitis in vulnerable communities. I like this role a lot because I get to explore the nooks and crannies of Seattle, and meet some of the kindest folk in the strangest places. Most of my experience lies in environmental biology labs, social services, and healthcare. HEP is a unique workplace in which I can draw on my experience in the aforementioned fields and use it in various ways to further the mission of HEP. Prior to joining HEP, I worked as an Employment Specialist and as a NA-C in a memory care unit. Being a part of HEP allows me to get to know the good people we have in Seattle, and specifically, the people who are not always visible in our city. I am passionate about providing and collaborating with people on their unique continuous care plans in a friendly yet professional demeanor. It’s hard to ask for help sometimes, and I admire and respect the vulnerability that folks have when asking about our services for themselves, friends, or family, and will always answer the call. Don’t be shy, please say hi! When I’m not at work, I enjoy swimming, playing video games, and listening to heavy metal.
