Maybe it's because she's a New Yorker. Or, maybe it's because she's an experienced counselor and patient advocate for clients of the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. Whatever the reason, Miranda takes her work with the Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis community seriously.
Miranda is a music lover, nature buff, and friendly New Yorker. Did we mention the quirky laugh? Her fire-red hair? Let's put it this way: Miranda is often the life of the party—and the life of the cafe and the sidewalk, too. She's a person who tells stories so well that others gather around just to hear the punch line. Miranda has also had Crohn's disease for over 2 decades. So, she has gained a lot of experience living with Crohn’s and she shares what she’s learned with her clients.
And what about when Miranda's feeling down? Well, she calls one of her many “Crohnies.” That’s the nickname that Miranda has given to her friends who are also living with Crohn's. So when Miranda's down, she gets together with some Crohnies to hang out and laugh it off.
