Mia L. Hazlett was born in Saigon, Vietnam. She was found on the streets in a pile of debris by a nurse at a nearby orphanage. Mia was adopted by an Irish-Italian family when she was just months old. Her parents raised her in Norfolk, MA with her two older brothers and sister. Mia graduated with her B.S. in Business Administration from Bridgewater State University.
Ms. Hazlett began her professional career in Marketing and moved to Alexandria, VA. After 4 years, Mia moved back to MA and switched careers, so she could become a dedicated mother to her firstborn. Leaving her marketing career behind, Mia began her administrative assistant career, promising herself she would one day only assist C-Level executives.
Today, Ms. Hazlett has over two decades of experience assisting top executives in the Finance, Healthcare, K-12, and Higher Education industries. Mia currently assists the President and Board of Trustees at Cape Cod Community College.
Mia’s world crashed when she divorced her husband. While experiencing 15 months of unemployment, 2 years of home insecurity, and with two daughters to raise, Mia wrote her first book, Going Through It. She later accomplished her bucket list goal of sharing her story with the world as a featured Tedx Talk speaker.
Because of the negative stereotypes Ms. Hazlett received as a single mother, Mia founded Single Professional Mother. She set the mission to eliminate the negative stereotypes associated with single motherhood and have an international network of single professional mothers who join together to uplift one another. She currently hosts the podcast by the same name and manages the blog and monthly newsletter.
Mia is an advocate for all single mothers, especially those just beginning the demanding journey. Her second book Single Professional Mother will be released April 2021.
