Kelly Mitchell background is a field of education and experience carnage. Her curiosity latches onto a topic that piques her interest and effectively immerses herself in researching it to exhaustion. Once the smoke clears, there is often a certificate or a degree in her hand---the accidental casualty of a forever learner.
Her dark sense of humor guides her to write satirical nonfiction works, cleverly retaining the serious nature and in-depth revelations of the subject matter. First, exposing the problem, tracing how it came to be a problem, and offering relevant solutions and insight. Her passion inspires thoughtful debates through laughter which sets people at ease--a welcome environment that can turn the wheels of change. If you do what you love, it's not a job; it's a dream-and; here she is killing it.
Originally from Fremont, Nebraska, she is a survivor of extreme culture shock after moving to Las Vegas, Nevada. Things are open after 10 pm, and they sell beer on Sundays--it was emotional. Mitchell earned an Associate Degree in Paralegal Studies and a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice but never entered either vocation (carnage).
Her entrepreneurial spirit seized the opportunity and started a collection business specializing in HOA Collections. For those who don't know, HOAs (homeowner's associations) is a world fraught with controversy, drama, and challenge--all things she loves. She jumped into the fire to spear-head bi-partisan landmark legislation, effectively reshaping the HOA industry in Nevada, which was codified to the law in 2015.
