Hi there, my name is Mia! Mia in Motion is a space where I can talk about all my passions and my journey in discovering a healthier me.
I’ve been very fortunate to spend the last 18 years of my life immersing myself in jazz and swing-era dances, traveling the world and teaching to share what I’ve learned with others. I’m married to Charlie Halloran, an incredible trombone player, and we currently reside in Algiers Point in New Orleans with our three dogs Josephine Boxer, Louly Mae Hampton, and Cowboy. I’ve been a collector of vintage clothing and housewares since I was 18, and it heavily influences my personal style and home decor! I love using fashion to create and express, mixing eras by intertwining vintage pieces with modern ones to design outfits that are uniquely me. I'm also passionate about atomic and midcentury modern interior design and I'm always searching for a new piece to add to my home!
I’ve suffered many back issues throughout my life, and one major setback in 2012 led me to reevaluate how I was living, and how I wanted to move forward. My focus on life shifted and I was pushed towards a new world where food was medicine, where self care and exercise became the forefront of my daily life, and where living my best life was of the utmost importance. My world is ever evolving, and I’m trying new endeavors weekly! Whether I’m roller skating, boxing, wrestling my dogs, exploring the city with my husband, running on the levee, tackling new fitness programs, or creating a new recipe, I’ve learned that it’s never too late to get healthy, to try something new, to challenge yourself, or to attempt to better your life in some small way.
I hope this space serves as inspiration to live your best life, to find a healthier you, and to embrace your own unique style!
