Alongside her students, Mitchell has served hundreds of economically distressed individuals in need of assistance with tax information. She works with the international student population, ensuring they follow federal tax regulations. Since 2014, Mitchell has been awarded the Low Income Taxpayer Clinic grant from the National Taxpayer Advocate each year to aid in her endeavors.

Mitchell taught the Tax Clinic and Advanced Tax Clinic courses, as well as a poverty class with fellow law professor Kelly Terry.
In the community, she participates in events like the Hispanic Heritage Festival and the EITC Coalition Super Saturday. She believes in educating the community on their rights and responsibilities as taxpayers while spreading awareness of the clinic’s services.
She presented at Congressional Liaison and IRS/Practitioner Liaison meetings and is active on campus in the Delta Project Committee, Law School Admissions Committee, Assessment Committee, Faculty Development Committee, and the UA Little Rock Sustainability Committee.
