Erin Mitchell is an almost native Atlantan, who has been residing here since age 7. Prior to that, she lived in Hinesville, Georgia; Livorno, Italy; and Fayetteville, North Carolina, courtesy of her Dad's active duty in the Army. Erin increased her international exposure after college, spending one year studying in China before returning to pursue Masters-level education in Professional Counseling at Richmont Graduate University in Atlanta. She is currently looking forward to a May 2010 graduation and embarking on her professional career. Her recreational interests include pick-up soccer, swimming as exercise/meditation, theater of the Shakespearean and improvisational varieties, spending time with her zany family and friends, and reading for pleasure.
