Mia joined the WorkJuggle team in April 2022. Mia is a learning and development professional with experience in a variety of organisations, from medical device to FMCG, not-for-profit and education.
Mia found an unconventional path into learning and development, starting her professional life in social care. The common thread throughout Mia’s career has always been her passion for helping people develop. Mia’s most recent qualifications have been in learning and development, personal and business coaching, and mindfulness.
