In the summer of 2017, Mia and her family relocated to Sarasota, FL. From 2017 until April 2019, Mia trained at EVO Athletics in Sarasota, FL under coaches Aimee Boorman and Jason Collins, with her goal to become an elite gymnast. After qualifying elite in 2018, injury prevented her from competing in the 2018 and 2019 seasons.
