Mitzi is a font of good ideas. What’s more, she has the imagination, work ethic and personality that enables her to bring those ideas to fruition. From the Bluebird Books Bus to the SPACEcraft public art project with Creative Pinellas (where I’m a board member), from Bloom Art Center to the new Venus Women’s Collective, from the Tampa Tribune to duPont REGISTRY Tampa Bay (where I’m the editor), she has proven time and again that she’s ahead of the curve when it comes to creative collaboration, thoughtful journalism and cutting-edge artwork.
Editor In Chief, duPont Registry Tampa Bay
“Working with Mitzi is always a pleasure and fully productive. A professional and creative powerhouse, her talent shines through leadership, grant writing, writing, research, volunteerism, and activism. We’ve partnered on projects such as the Bloomberg Philanthropies Public Art Challenge and SHINE Mural Festival, and I consistently recommend her to colleagues seeking incredible talent at a reasonable cost. She has the ability to do just about anything that’s needed, with very little direction.”
