Miranda graduated magna cum laude from Campbell University, where she received a Bachelor of Arts in history with a minor in criminal justice. She also received her Juris Doctorate from Campbell University, where she served as a writer and associate editor for the Campbell Law Observer. Most recently, Miranda has earned an LL.M in legal practice from Nottingham-Trent University. The subject of her dissertation was the various legal complexities and ethical considerations regarding the status of North Korean refugees in China.
Prior to attending law school, Miranda worked as a kindergarten and ESL teacher in Seoul, Korea for seven years. Through this experience, she was able to grow more in patience, empathy, and understanding, enabling her to be a better advocate. She chose to become an attorney because she cares deeply about helping others, and while in law school, she had the privilege to serve as a student representative for the Senior Law Clinic and the Blanchard Community Law Clinic.
