Personal: Mia started inline skating when she was eight years old and decided to make the switch to ice so that she could chase the Olympic dream at the age of 13...After the 2010 Olympic Trials, Mia choose to take a break from speed skating and found a new passion for cycling where she raced professionally for five years...She returned to speed skating in early 2016 after realizing her love for the sport still remained...After skating she would love to pursue a career in the Culinary Arts...Her parents, Karen and Dominic, have owned an Italian Restaurant her entire life...Mia says, “There is nothing better then growing up in a kitchen. The lessons and responsibilities you learn are irreplaceable, with the greatest reward being the amount of pizza you get to eat”...As a returning athlete, she wants to cherish every moment and live her life by the following words: "If you can't stop thinking about it, don't stop working for it.”
