Previously, she was the Senior Director of Communications for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).
At LACMA, Miranda played a pivotal role conceptualising, developing and implementing strategies to raise the museum’s profile and visibility locally, nationally and internationally and to increase its audiences.
