Personal Philanthropic Interests
Equitable access to education
Mia has a passion for storytelling. It’s what led her to pursue a journalism career after college, first at a local news affiliate in Beaumont, Texas, before moving to Dallas. After spending a short time at a news station there, she spent three years at Methodist Health System and coordinated media relations, content creation and community engagement efforts. Before joining Seattle Foundation, Mia also provided strategic communications support for global brands — in-house for American Airlines and through an agency for Microsoft.
She now lives in Seattle, but Mia is a proud East Coast native who grew up in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in broadcast journalism and a minor in leadership studies from University of Maryland–College Park
Mia has been working at Seattle Foundation since 2021.
