Miranda Allder was born in Little Rock Arkansas to Ted and Micki Alder. She was the first of three children. Her early childhood was spent in the Little Rock area, but the family moved to Carbondale, Illinois for a few years, while her dad completed his Doctorate at Southern Illinois University.
The family moved to Batesville, Arkansas, where Miranda finished High School. She entered college at University of Central Arkansas and started her early career with Outback Steakhouse in North Little Rock. Miranda and Mark met in North Little Rock and later moved to Montgomery, Alabama for Mark to attend Air Command and Staff College. She continued her college education at Auburn University - Montgomery. After a year in Montgomery, Mark & Miranda moved to Scott Air Force Base, Illinois, just across the river from St. Louis, Missouri.
Miranda continued to pursue her degree at Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville and graduated Magna Cum Laude in May 2008, majoring in English and Secondary Education. She is an exceptionally qualified and gifted educator and looks forward to starting her teaching career after Brady gets a little older.
It was a short three years in Southern Illinois and then she and Mark packed up and moved back down South to North Carolina. Now that Brady has arrived, she's fully occupied in being a first-class Mom and loving every minute of it.
