Miranda grew up in a small town in northern Kentucky. Upon graduating from high school, she received a piano scholarship and academic scholarship to Kentucky Wesleyan College and became the first person in her family to attend college.
During college, Miranda worked with several non-profit organizations and developed a love for community service and mentoring young people. She moved to Nashville in 2001 to pursue a Master’s of Theological Studies at Vanderbilt Divinity School. While at Vanderbilt, Miranda became passionate about social justice and decided to attend law school.
While in law school at the University of Tennessee, Miranda was the Managing Editor of the Tennessee Law Review and also received the Third Year Editor’s Prize. She was President of Law Women and received the National Association of Women Lawyers Award, Outstanding Pro Bono Service Award, National Association of Women Judges Scholarship, Marion S. Griffin Scholarship, and was a member of the Hamilton Burnett Chapter of the American Inns of Court.
Miranda was previously in-house counsel with UBS Investment Bank and prior to that practiced law with Stites & Harbison for eight years. She has been a Big Sister through the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program for eight years and has been a member and co-chair of its Ambassadors Circle Leadership Program. Her experience advocating for her Little’s education resulted in an appointment by the Metro Nashville Public Schools to its Charter School Application Review Committee, which she did for several years. Miranda has also served as a mentor for a teenager in foster care through Governor Bredesen’s Mentoring Initiative since shortly after its launch in 2007, and from 2013-2014, she served on the Davidson County Foster Care Review Board.
