Miranda (Randi) is our second Drafter here at Thomsen Homes. She hails from from the quaint little town of Edmore, ND and graduated from NDSCS with a degree in Architectural Drafting & Estimating and Construction Management (I know, long right?) That’s because Miranda is super talented and timely. She’s always got your back when you need her for a side project and can whip up a home for clients in no time! Her persona can be summoned up to a good Cardi B meme, whilst boasting a UND hockey hoodie and cute headband to match! Get to know more about Miranda below!
