|Over the next few weeks, each of our three new team members will introduce themselves to you here. This week, meet Miha Tomuta, our Community Engagement Manager based in Orange County.
My friends and colleagues call me Miha but at home I'm Mihaela, and my grade school friends call me Michelle. Each name reflects a past, present, or current season of
my life and changing identify.
I was born in Romania in Eastern
Europe and immigr
ated to the States when I was six years old. I don't remember many details about my life in Europe but I do remember walking to town with my parents t
o pick up groceries, visit the library, and play at the park. In my hometown, walking was a part of everyday life and our walks are some of my fondest memories. My walki
ng adventures continued in California where I walked to and from school for 12 years.
