Before founding Defiant, Milia worked at Hillary for America, where she served as assistant to Hillary campaign Chair John Podesta. What began as the first step in a lifelong dream to help elect the fist woman President ended in Wikileaks, Russian cyber-espionage, Pizzagate, and Milia's leaked email on a Killer Mike t-shirt. From the aspirational to the patently absurd, Milia experienced the 2016 election firsthand. Before joining the campaign she worked at the Center for American Progress (CAP) as a researcher and speechwriter for then CAP Chair John Podesta and CAP President Neera Tanden. She then joined the Women's Initiative team where she researched workplace family protections, equal pay, and gender equity in the workplace for women of color. While working on the Women's Initiative she helped lead the team that put together the first White House Summit on Working Families alongside colleagues at the White House and the Department of Labor.
Milia attended Pomona College where she graduated Cum Laude in 2013. Milia grew up in San Diego, but she was born in Hawaii and is a dual citizen between the US and Canada.
