“As a resident of the Bullhead City area for 23 years, I have enjoyed a fulfilling career in radiology. I am a self-described lifetime learner, which has led me to pursue training in several different modalities, including ultrasound and mammography. Patient care is my passion in the clinical setting; however, I noticed that working with the radiology students as a clinical preceptor was not only enjoyable but rewarding as well. In 2021, I made a career shift and moved to the educational discipline of radiology at Mohave Community College. Doors have since opened for me to continue my education and I am learning more than I had ever imagined. The fun is just beginning, and I can’t wait to see what this new adventure in education has on the horizon! On a personal note, I enjoy spending time with my 11 yr. old son who is into multiple sports. I love travel and anything outdoors -hiking, camping, and off-roading. When I am home, I enjoy reading and woodburning!” – Jessica Hanley

“I’ve lived in Mohave County and been part of our communities for close to 30 years. I began working as an Automotive Collision instructor for MCC 13 years ago. I painted my first truck when I was 17 and was hooked! I was in the Auto Collision industry for over 25 years, having owned my own shop for 8 of those years. In my spare time away from the college, I love building cars. I have a 1987 Chevrolet Suburban that I take to car shows. I have found a true passion in education and bring a real-world vibe to my classes so that students are better prepared for a successful career in the Automotive Collison industry.” – Richie Mitten
