Miranda HansenImpact Analyst
Miranda serves as an Impact Analyst at Root Capital. In her role, she coordinates data collection with consultants and firms, conducts data cleaning and preliminary data analyses, and develops survey tools. She also helps to visualize all of that data into reports that anyone can understand. Miranda was initially drawn to Root Capital’s mission because of the way it empowers communities to take charge of their own progress and development. Though she was raised in Texas, she was born in Venezuela and later lived in El Salvador and Colombia, making her especially excited about Root Capital’s work in Latin America. Before joining the Root Capital team, Miranda worked as a program coordinator, research analyst, and policy officer. She received her undergraduate degree in Psychology and Latin American studies from the University of Texas at Austin and her Master’s in Language and Literacy from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. In her spare time, Miranda enjoys baking, exploring new places, and spending time with her family and her cat, Solomon.
