She has provided her services for Ace Air, specifically as the assistant to the owner, for the past several months.During this period of time, Mia has become an integral part of our overall success.In the absence of an official marketing director, Mia and I worked on several projects together.She has the uncanny ability to turn ideas and dreams into action plans and reality.

I highly recommend Mia for any opportunity you have available, as her attention-to-detail and communication skills make her an asset to any project.Her approach to solutions is innovative, streamlined, and modern.Mia’s skills and infectious positivity will surely be missed by everyone here at Ace Air.

Her position as Senior Administrator tests her strengths, convictions. judgement, and abilities daily. It is my pleasure to give Mia Hillary my highest recommendation.
