Rebecca Mitich


Husch Blackwell


Rebecca is a partner in Husch Blackwell’s Real Estate Group and co-leader of the firm’s
Affordable Housing and Community Development team. A Los Angeles native, Rebecca’s path
to Milwaukee included stops in Kansas City, Michigan, St. Petersburg, Russia, Poland and
Chicago. Of all the places she has lived, she has trouble thinking of a better place to call home
than in Milwaukee on the shore of our beautiful lake.

Prior to becoming a lawyer, Rebecca spent 7 years working in the fields of education and
non-profit development, teaching English as a second language to adults in Chicago’s Pilsen and
Little Village neighborhoods, and working as a grant writer and fundraiser for the Carole
Robertson Center for Learning, a family service organization on Chicago’s southwest side. As a
lawyer, her time is still centered around building community, and she’s proud to have been a part
of so many projects that have changed the face of Milwaukee—not the least of which is the
construction of Cristo Rey’s new high school, a building that will be transformative for the Clark
Square neighborhood and the lives of the over 400 children that will go to school there every

Rebecca is on the Board of the Urban Ecology Center and the Milwaukee Economic
Development Corporation and sits on the Loan Committee of the Northwest Side Community
Development Corporation.

Rebecca is married to the funniest man she knows and has three boys – a 10 year-old and
8 year-old twins – all three of whom are completely embarrassed that she’s putting on her
dancing shoes. While understanding that the potential for embarrassment is very real (in fact,
nearly certain), Rebecca couldn’t help but jump at the chance to take on a totally new challenge
for an amazing cause. Start the music!
