Mia LaBrier, Program Coordinator, joined the Girls on the Run St. Louis team in October, 2018. She grew up in St. Louis, then traveled to Iowa to attend Cornell College where she received her undergraduate degree in Psychology. Before joining the GOTR-STL team, Mia worked as an Outreach Advocate at Iown Homeless Youth Centers assisting youth in attaining their basic needs and accomplishing their goals. After moving back to St. Louis, Mia served as the Community Projects Americorps VISTA at Gateway Greening where she was responsible for coordinating volunteers and community leaders to install and expand community and school gardens throughout St. Louis.
Mia was drawn to Girls on the Run because she believes it shows girls that they have the skills to successfully navigate any situation that they encounter. She is excited to work with all of the amazing GOTR sites in and around the St. Louis area!
