Susan Mitchell

I've taken the scenic route to community health nursing. I grew up in Ohio and Missouri and earned my BA in Media Studies at Carleton College in Minnesota. I then moved to New York City, where I co-founded a small publishing press and worked at a magazine or two before relocating to Seattle for a job working on board games. 

A trip to Mozambique woke me out of a slumber, and slowly but surely I made my way to UW in the graduate entry program in nursing. Three weeks after I earned my BSN (and four years after my first visit) I returned to Mozambique to volunteer as a nurse. It won't surprise you then to learn that I'm especially interested in cross-cultural and global health.

In my free time I'm a (slow) runner, avid hiker, and film nerd.
