We are thrilled to announce the newest addition to the Ryan House team, Mitch Cohen, our new child life specialist!

Mitch most recently comes to Ryan House from Valleywise (formerly Maricopa Medical Center). For the past five years, his areas of focus have been in trauma, and as a pediatric ICU specialist. He is so happy to be part of the Ryan House team and to work directly with our children and families.

“I’m super excited about working at Ryan House because I know what type of impact it has on the children and families it serves,” said Mitch. “Working in a peds ICU gave me the opportunity to work with kids and their parents. I’ve been fortunate throughout my career to always administer child and family-centered care.”

“No one else does what Ryan House does. I know that for sure.”

An Arizona State University graduate with a double major in education and communication, he taught pre-k and first grade for nearly five years after pursuing his undergrad degrees. Mitch decided to pursue his Masters in Educational Leadership and subsequently another Master’s degree in Child Therapy. 

He loves spending time with his wife and two young boys. He’s an avid baseball fan and looks forward to coaching little league again once the current COVID-19 pandemic is over.
