Prior to OLP, Mia gained her fundraising experience at the San Diego Public Library Foundation where she coordinated and managed fundraising events, planned appeals throughout the year, managed volunteers, and completed gift processing and donor acknowledgments. Mia is very excited for the opportunity to work at OLP and grow her skills in fundraising. Growing up with three sisters she values sisterhood and the true meaning of loyalty, strength, and forgiveness. While she has been at OLP, she has been busy with our database conversion and building relationships with our donors. She is looking forward to working with the new Student Lacemakers Council where she will teach students the importance and meaning of fundraising and what philanthropy means. Outside of OLP, Mia enjoys spending time with her sisters, fiancé, and dog.
