Functionality. Balance. Peace of Mind.

Miranda was born and raised in Connecticut. After graduating from Emory University in Atlanta, Miranda spent a year doing AmeriCorps service across the country. It was during that time that she got her first taste of the home improvement industry, working alongside volunteers and professionals at Habitat for Humanity in New Orleans and Miami.
Soon after completing her year of service Miranda began her professional career in the Residential Property Management field. Changing industries a few times, she always excelled in financial management, business operations, and social media marketing. However after overseeing the renovation and redesign of her father's New England Colonial house, Miranda realized there was another side of her personality waiting to be explored. So in 2018 she completed the most comprehensive and intensive home staging and redesign certification course in North America provided by the Home Staging Resource, launched Forte Interior Transformations, LLC and resigned from her position as Business Manager of a national commercial furniture liquidation company. One of her main inspirations for adding organizing and decluttering services to her offering has been seeing family members trudge through the deeply personal and trying tasks after a death in the family and increasing hoarding tendancies.
Now she loves helping her friends, family and clients get and stay organized, prepare for life's transitions, style their living spaces in a way that will sell or rent their home fast, and most importantly invoke positivity and peace of mind every time they return home.
