Kai Miranda Joins the Red Angus Association of America

Denver, CO – The Red Angus Association of America welcomes Kai Miranda to its member services team as a DNA customer service specialist in the Commerce City, Colorado, office. Miranda will handle day-to-day submissions in the DNA department to catalog and analyze DNA samples on behalf of RAAA membership.

“We’re excited to have Kai join our professional staff at RAAA,” said Tom Brink, RAAA CEO. “She brings a great cattle background and a strong work ethic to the position. Plus she’s team-oriented, which fits our group perfectly.”

Originally from Greeley, Colorado, Miranda hails from a commercial cow-calf operation in eastern Colorado but spent a large amount of her childhood on a variety of agriculture operations in Hawaii with her father’s family. Before joining Red Angus, Miranda worked for the Colorado Cattlemen’s Association as part of the fellowship program and has also worked in the dairy industry as an AI technician.

She attended Colorado State University and graduated with a bachelor of science in agriculture in December 2019, double majoring in animal science and agricultural business. While at CSU, she was a College of Agricultural Sciences Ag Ambassador and a member of the CSU livestock judging and seedstock teams.

Outside of her professional interests, Miranda is a member of the Colorado Cattlemen’s Association, assists with her high school’s FFA program through the alumni association and volunteers at the local food bank.

“I am excited for the opportunity to work with Red Angus breeders and industry members as they advance this reputable breed. Working alongside the awesome

staff at the Red Angus Association of America, I hope to help RAAA and its breeders as they bring the Red Angus breed to another level and improve the genetic quality of their herds.”

Miranda started in her new role on July 1 and can be reached at kai@redangus.org or (940) 387-3502, ext. 14.
