Pia was born and raised in Juuka, Finland, a quiet town in the eastern countryside. Growing up, she never imagined a career in modeling or entertainment, but at age 20 she was convinced by some friends to enter a local beauty pageant. One thing led to another, and Pia was crowned Miss Finland 2011, later competing for the title of Miss Universe Sao Paolo, Brazil.
After Miss Universe, Pia was signed by a major global modeling agency and moved to Los Angeles in 2012 to pursue modeling and acting. Since then, she has gained international recognition modeling for over 100 global brands and has been featured in dozens of commercials, including a Mercedes Benz Super Bowl commercial.
Pia is most passionate about healthy and happy living. She loves to stay fit, eat healthy and motivate others to do the same! She also believes in the power of meditation and spirituality, and feels most at home when she's exploring the infinite beauty of nature.
