Proud of her unconventional life Mia has never done anything by the book. From living in over a dozen houses in six states to dancing pre professionally at the Kansas City Ballet. Her life has been full of curveballs.
After homeschooling herself throughout high school she graduated at sixteen. She then continued her education by going to her local community college for the spring semester. At this time she was dancing 40+ hours a week during her final semester at the Kansas City Ballet. It was through this experience that she decided that college and ballet were not the paths for her.
She found a college alternative called Praxis and started it in September of 2019. Throughout the program, she built her skills and landed a role as a digital marketing apprentice at an agency. So, at seventeen she packed up her life into three boxes and moved out to San Francisco in March 2020, the week the city shut down. She gravitated towards the SEO department and fell in love with the work. Eventually getting promoted to an SEO Specialist as well as moving home to Kansas City.
Her goal for every area of her life is to be in a constant state of learning and growing. Mia is now working remotely and traveling as much as she can, despite living everywhere there is still a tremendous amount of wanderlust in her.
“Mia is a joy to work on projects with! She’s always willing to share advice with team members and promote a healthy, communicative, workplace atmosphere. When it comes to getting stuff done, her abilities to problem solve and exceed expectations are simply unmatched. Mia has the ability to think outside the box and come up with unique solutions, which she uses on a daily basis. Her positive attitude and “no task is too big” mindset is something I always look forward to when we get the chance to work together.” – Kyle Larson
“Mia has a work ethic like no other. She is a dedicated professional that goes above and beyond her standard job description to produce high-quality material. Mia's biggest strength is her ability to effectively communicate and connect with others. Besides having a great sense of humor, the enthusiasm she brings to every project makes her a fun and motivating individual to work with.” – Anna Klawitter
