She has an amazing stepson, Braylon, who is a senior at GBC and will start his college journey at WVU Tech this fall. At any given time of the school year, her family can be found at an athletic event as Braylon participated in golf, basketball, and baseball. They are also avid Marshall fans, spending time in Huntington catching Marshall games. Miranda is a firm believer in giving back to this beautiful community by assisting in various groups and needs throughout the year. Knowing the United Way is such a strong force in assisting our community makes this experience even more special to her. Miranda says, “If we are not giving back, what are we really doing?”
