"I Have Dedicated My Business to the Lord, And Am Here To Serve YOU"

“Providing professional care and affordable services to the community”
I was born in East Meadow, NY and raised in Roosevelt, New York. I graduated from Roosevelt Jr. Sr. High School and attended St. John’s University in Queens, NY where I earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Administration. In 2000, I graduated from American Academy McAllister Institute for Funeral Service where I served as Vice President for the class. I received my New York State Funeral Director’s License a year later. I worked as a licensed funeral director at John N. Moore Jr. Funeral Home located in Roosevelt, NY and Carl C. Burnett Funeral Home located in Hempstead, NY.
I decided to step out on faith to pursue my goal as owning my own funeral home. I wanted to offer families so much more and give them peace of mind knowing that their loved one will be honored and respected with dignity and love. In April of 2011, I incorporated Mitchell Funeral Service, Inc. and began serving families in Roosevelt, Freeport, Hempstead and surrounding communities. Since then, the business has tripled and continues to grow at record breaking numbers. I am blessed and honored to serve the community which I lived.
I was a member of the choir and drama ministry at Upper Room Christian World Center in Dix Hills, NY. Currently, I am a member of Gospel Lighthouse Assembly located in Roosevelt, NY and am also an active member in the Christ First Youth Ministry, which includes children from the Roosevelt, Hempstead, Uniondale, Freeport, and Baldwin communities.
Over the past 16 years, I have established a tradition of trust, and a reputation for devoted service to families in their time of sorrow. I take great pride in establishing a strong bond with the families I serve. I choose to use my career by serving families with care and compassion. I never take any passing lightly. My desire to care for families in their time of need was the reason why I became a funeral director. To me, that’s what a funeral director is all about – helping people within the community through a difficult time. Each experience has taught me a new lesson, which I believe has gained me the true meaning of a helping hand.
I am committed to helping all families, regardless of their income or need. My promise to the community is to provide services that are dignified, respectful, compassionate, and affordable.
I always give families peace of mind and assurance that they are valued. I strongly feel that wishes should be fulfilled, services should be personal, unique, and should reflect the life of the deceased. I promise to always treat a family the way I would want them to treat my family and me. And that’s with honesty, respect, and care.
