She attributes much of her success to her faith in God, her family and friends, as well as her determination, humbleness, and lighthearted nature. She notes that if she could give advice to her past self, she would say, ” ‘No’ is a complete sentence. No explanations needed,” and that sentence in itself holds a lot more power than you think.

Recently, she has begun to study meditation, as it helps her clear her mind and become more in-tune with herself.
Ms. Mitchell would like to dedicate this honor to her mother, who sacrificed herself and everything in raising her and her siblings. According to Ms. Mitchell, her mother is truly the backbone of the family and states, “I would not be the well-accomplished woman I am today if it was not for her installing values and morals, and providing a loving, caring, and safe environment.” She also notes that she values her family to a higher standard and gives a lot of credit to her mom since she had to sacrifice so much for her and her siblings.
The nurse and author wants to be remembered as a nurse who always had a smile on her face and was loving and caring. In the future, she wants to advance her writing skills and hone that craft. In her nursing career, she wants to focus more on oncology, studying diagnosis and finding cancer treatments, such as new technology to better her patients.
