Our People

Mia Holshouser

President & CEO

Spunky, full of energy, a story teller, strong in faith, knee deep in kids and animals, devoted wife.
Mia comes from a varied and vast background that enables her to identify with pretty much ALL markets – from handling wild animals to construction to corporate life.

She is gifted in discerning who you are and where you need to go. Another of Mia’s strengths is her ability to relay this information to designers and copywriters so that the end product hits the mark time and time again.

When Mia’s off the clock, you’ll find her with her family, camping, relaxing with a good book or most likely at her church.
