What brought you to CA?

I’ve lived in the bay area my whole life. So, having the opportunity to work with such a collaborative group while still living in the heart of Silicon Valley was a no-brainer for me. Not to mention the beautiful view of the new 49ers Football Stadium and Great America :)

Why is the CA Payment Security Community valuable to you and the customers you serve?

I’ve always been a huge believer in finding solutions to problems by myself because it gives you the chance to learn something new and grow from it. While this is a very beneficial approach, it is not always efficient. For example, if someone you know had the same exact problem as you in the past and has already found a solution, why not ask them to help you out? That is precisely the point of the CA Payment Security Community – sharing your expertise and knowledge for the purpose of helping others. If that alone is not appealing to you, there are tons of features and resources within the CA Community you may find helpful!

Favorite dessert: Favorite dessert has to be the Pizookie (Pizza Cookie). If you don’t know what that is consider yourself lucky. It’s a pizza-sized warm chocolate-chip cooke with vanilla bean ice cream on top.

Favorite 3 movies of all time: That’s tough. I love so many different movies, so I’ll just go with my most recent – Fury, Whiplash and Foxcatcher

Favorite hobbies/interests: There are a few things that I can never let go and those are: Guitar, Singing, Weight Lifting/Athletics and Family

If you were an animal, which animal would you be and why?

I’ve never been able to give a good answer to this question, but I think I finally found it. A hyena. It seems like they have mastered the balance of being wild, having fun and being able to get serious and tough when the moment comes.

Note from Kristen: Mitchell - Thank you for your participation in the CA Payment Security Community! You rock!
