Harvard graduate Mitzi is a writer, a former rice farmer, and a past president of the 40,000-member American Agri-Women. In the 1990s and early 2000s her column, The Environment and You, was the most widely syndicated environmental column in the US. Recently she’s written a biography of Mark Victor Hansen, the Chicken Soup for the Soul guy. The book, Relentless, has won numerous awards for the Best Biography of 2022 and was an Amazon #1 best seller. Royalties for Relentless will go for humanitarian relief in Ukraine.

She became particularly interested in aiding the people in Ukraine when General Andriy Nebytov, head of Kyiv Region Police, invited her to visit Ukraine in August of last year. She had written about humanitarian conditions in Ukraine, and the General invited her to come see for herself.

Her first night in Ukraine was partly spent in a bomb shelter because of a rocket attack on the city where she was staying. During her second trip there, many of her interviews were conducted in bomb shelters while the cities were under attack.
