Miriam is interested in creating equitable, resilient communities via inclusive economic development planning.
Miriam is an Arkansas native who relocated to Atlanta in 2021. Growing up in rural Arkansas, her experience in grassroots organizing for immigrant communities around the state is where her passion for community development began. Growing up in a small one-factory town and navigating equity issues in Arkansas’s Hispanic immigrant communities pushed Miriam to explore solutions that would help communities rise above systemic disparity, which led her to economic development planning.
At HR&A, Miriam is interested in supporting our Inclusive Cities, Urban Tech and Innovation, and RealEstate Advisory practices. She welcomes the opportunity to learn how to create equitable, resilient communities for the benefit of all, while also encouraging growth and systematic change within the communities we advise.
Miriam earned her Master’s in City and Regional Planning at Georgia Tech, with concentrations in Economic Development and Land Use.
