Hi! My name is Mia.

I am passionate about swim and everything water related! From water safety/parental education down to water conservation I'll run down any hill that touches the subject. I LOVE playing mermaids and teaching children how to do the same. I love warm weather and red rocks to sit on, being a desert mermaid in the state of Utah definitely has its perks. 

Birthday Parties

Some kids want spider man or wolverine at their birthday party, but I wanted a mermaid! That wasn't an option for me so I figured I would just be that mermaid! Birthday parties can be both in the pool and on land. (wet/dry events)

Library storytelling

This is my favorite kind of event because: +its FREE at the library! +I can do it all seasons +I get to meet lots of new people! Keep an eye out on my Instagram to see what location I'm at to catch me having a clam old time!

Environmental Education

Learning about the environment is key to certain species' survival. I can be booked to swim at private/public pools, aquariums, beaches and even sit dry in the classroom!

Mandated Reporter

I am certified from the state of California on Mandated Reporting for child abuse. I am expected to be honest and diligent in my services as to protect kids in danger and prevent possible scenarios in which something could occur. I am to file anything deemed suspicious concerning any child/parent/guardian situation from witnessing, secondhand communication. or alarming signs/symptoms.

Lay Responder

I am certified from Dixie State University through American Red Cross and meet the qualifications for the professional rescuer First aid/CPR/AED

Teaching English as a foreign language

I have my online certificate to teach English as a foreign language to all age groups! I served a volunteer project based in Romania and had the time of my life trying to both teach English and simultaneously learn Hungarian.

Fashion Design Certificate

I have a diploma in Fashion design! I have worked on theatrical costuming, loungewear, and I alter/ revamp gowns!

Water Safety Ambassador

I am a representative in the Red cross community for water safety.

Miss Petite U.S.A.

As a fellow not-so-tall woman I uphold the belief that our sizes and shapes make us unique; Let's celebrate this uniqueness!!! My platform this year, and for the rest of my life is my project: Reaching fantastic change.

State Cleanups

Lake, invasive species, safety

Need something to do? I need extra hands! We do cleanups on lake shores, bike paths, remove invasive species, practice safety and have tons of resources for more projects. Great for Scouts, Youth activities, and Conserving Utah lake.
