A native of Worcester, MA, Mia came to The Woodstock Academy as a transfer student in her junior year after her former high school permanently closed its doors. Even though the Town of Woodstock and The Academy were unfamiliar environments for Mia, it didn’t take long for her to join the athletic community, make new friends, and connect with WA’s ResLife family as a dorm student.
Growing up as a student-athlete for most of her life, Mia did not hesitate to join the girls’ ice hockey and golf teams. In just two years of golfing as a Centaur, she went undefeated for an entire season, won an ECC championship, then a state championship, and was awarded as an ECC All-Star, which she shared were the proudest moments of her tenure at The Woodstock Academy.
Her favorite class is Anatomy and Physiology with Mrs. Joliff, which is fitting of her plan to study medicine or physical therapy at Occidental College in Los Angeles, California. Mia will also play for the Tigers on their women’s golf team beginning in fall 2022.
“My experience has been amazing. I love all the new friends I’ve made and sports I’ve had the opportunity to participate in.”
