Shaunna Rushing

Miranda Dauphinee

Co Founder and Executive Director of Administration

Miranda is a mom to four, Logan, Beckett, Declan and Harper. Her passion for seeing women connect in a real and authentic way stems from spending many years as a single mom and now widow, always feeling like an outsider looking in. She’s also certified in holistic health coaching and loves to blog in her (not so) spare time.

When she’s not eating, sleeping and breathing everything NWC, you can find her blogging about her personal life at and daydreaming about her next cup of coffee. Although she’s originally from Vermont, she desperately hates the snow and currently resides in Charlotte, NC with her children.
