The Scarpa Team
Who We Are
Mia first discovered her talent for editing when, as an undergraduate, she was a tutor in the Writing Center at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pennsylvania where she majored in Theatre. A former high school English teacher, Mia holds a Master of Arts in Teaching from Sacred Heart University as well as a Yoga teaching certification from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. She currently resides in Manhattan where she is a professional actress and a member of Actors’ Equity Association.
After a lifetime of storytelling in the theater, Fran’s experience with interpreting dialogue and judging what works and doesn’t work when telling a story made her the perfect literary advisor for Gary. When not advising Gary, Fran is working for her daughter Gina at Positive Voices Studio as the office manager.
Gina holds a degree in Marketing from Post University, and she is the owner of Positive Voices Studio in Shelton, where she makes her living as a voice-over artist and the teacher of voice-over skills. Gina has contributed to Gary’s writing venture by advising him on the use of social media and general marketing.
