From Chicken Soup for the Expectant Mother's Soul

Who Is Nancy Mitchell?

Nancy Mitchell is the director of copyrights and permissions for the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. She graduated from Arizona State University in May of 1994 with a B.S. in Nursing. After graduation Nancy worked at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona, in the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit. Four months after graduation, Nancy moved back to her native town of Los Angeles and became involved with the Chicken Soup series. Nancy’s intentions were to help finish A 2nd Helping of Chicken Soup for the Soul and then return to nursing. However, in December of that year, she was asked to continue on full time at The Canfield Group. Nancy put nursing on hold and became the director of publishing, working closely with Jack and Mark on all Chicken Soup for the Soul projects.

Nancy says that what she is most thankful for right now is her move back to Los Angeles. “If I hadn’t moved back to California, I wouldn’t have had the chance to be there for my mom during her bout with breast cancer.” Out of that struggle Nancy coauthored Chicken Soup for the Surviving Soul: 101 Stories of Courage and Inspiration from Those Who Have Survived Cancer. Little did she know that the book would become her own inspiration when her dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1999.

Nancy also coauthored Chicken Soup for the Christian Family Soul and will coauthor the upcoming Chicken Soup for the Nurse’s Soul. Nancy resides in Santa Barbara with her golden retriever, Kona.
