Mitchell Christian settled in the Rogue Valley in 1997 and joined the JPR staff the following year. Mitchell's initial love for public radio began in the San Francisco Bay area where he enjoyed Echoes and Hearts of Space.
Mitchell received a bachelor’s degree in business from Western Michigan University, passed all parts of the CPA examination and completed his education as a Certified Financial Planner. His extensive experience in non-profit accounting created a firm foundation for his work at JPR where he oversees the myriad financial and reporting requirements necessary to keep JPR humming each day.
During his free time, Mitchell enjoys his daily bike rides, hikes on the many trails throughout the valley and surrounding mountains, camping, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, and the solitude of the natural world.
