Mitchell retired from her position with the Packers in January of this year, but continues to serve the community. Mitchell is interested in human relationships and how they influence our lives; she has dedicated her time to helping people better understand these relationships through her independent leadership and consulting firm, Mitchell Management Consulting.  Mitchell will share her journey, from her beginnings living with her six brothers and sisters, through her transition from nursing to her involvement with the Packers, to the loss of her husband to colon cancer, the foundation of Mitchell Management Consulting and her continuous involvement in community service.

The Phenomenal Woman Conference focuses on celebrating, advocating, supporting and empowering women, and includes: lunch; Mitchell's keynote presentation; interactive workshops; vendor exhibits; gifts and raffles; and a performance by the Tammy Ann Winn, an award-winning, internationally touring singer/songwriter and recording artist, during lunch.
