Hello, my name is Mia Balassa. I graduated from California State University, Fullerton with a B.A. in Psychology. I enjoy traveling, cooking and hiking. I spend some of my time volunteering in the community by serving hot meals to our homeless population. I am full of energy and always have a huge smile on my face! I love the Desert Vineyard and I am so happy that I am here teaching it's youth.
What many people don't know, I was on the US Ice Dancing team in the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. I also enjoy hang gliding, sport rocketry and fly fishing. When I get the time, I love to read a good quantum physics textbook, quilt and relax cross-pollinating rare orchids.
Together, we will make this an AWESOME year!
