Miranda is originally from Maine, where she grew up with her grandparents and twin brother. She moved to Bangor, Maine for her undergraduate degree, and that is where she developed a love of hiking and nature. While living in Bangor, she worked at an inpatient hospital for children and adolescents. She also co-facilitated a bereavement group for adolescent girls who had lost a loved one. A few months after graduating, Miranda moved to Boston to get her Masters of Social Work at Boston College. Here, she worked as a School Social Worker at an elementary school and a clinician at McLean Hospital on a short-term unit for adults. It was through these experiences that Miranda realized she enjoyed working with the college-aged population.
