Wes Mitchell currently resides in Arlington, VA, just across the Potomac River from Washington, DC. He is a declassification analyst for the U.S. Navy, entrusted to review classified national security information for public release. Wes has stayed connected to the soccer world by coaching two travel teams for the Arlington Soccer Association as well. Wes worked for GRS in 2010-2011 as a programs intern in Lilongwe, Malawi.
