Mia joined ABC13 in October 2021 while finishing her final semester in college. Originally from Kennesaw, Georgia, she moved to Lynchburg in the fall of 2018 to attend Liberty University. She graduated in December 2021 with a degree in Digital Media Performance and minors in Journalism and Global Studies.

During her time at Liberty, she worked for the Liberty Champion newspaper as a news writer, assistant news editor, and digital media producer. She was also the Spiritual Development Coordinator for the Liberty Flamettes dance team. Performing with the team at basketball games, school and community events, and on football sidelines cheering on the Flames was a highlight of her college experience.

Her passion for storytelling began in high school, where she anchored and reported for her school’s news broadcasts. Ever since she has wanted to pursue a career in broadcast journalism.

Mia enjoys competing in pageants and is a self-published children’s book author. She is Miss Central Virginia 2023 and a mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Virginia. In her free time, she loves to bake, shop at estate sales, work out, and spend time with family and friends.

Mia is thrilled to be working for ABC13 as a Multimedia Journalist. Feel free to send her any story ideas, you can email her at
