Account Manager

Mia was born in Springfield, illinois and moved to Springfield, Missouri at a young age. After moving back to Illinois, she started building her work ethic at 15 and slowly worked her way to being a proud account manager at Upper Echelon Inc. With natural leadership skills, she would like to open her own business in Colorado or somewhere in the Pacific Northwest, to eventually own land and live an active and self-sufficient life. She cannot wait to start building a team to make these dreams come true, and to help others reach their goals too by providing strong communication and marketing skills.
