Miranda grew up skating on the Wisconsin side of the Mississippi river, where she honed her love for a variety of winter sports. After moving to Teton Valley in 2013 with her husband Brian, a wildland firefighter, Miranda completed her horticulturalist certification from the American Society for Horticultural Science, while working in a leadership role at Trail Creek Nursery. After taking time off to start her family, Miranda enrolled in the Learn to Play program and Brian joined a TVF Pond Hockey team that same winter. Together they fell in love with the sport and their son Rowan seems to be following suit. After experiencing what the TVF programs meant to her family, she was excited to take on the role of Programming Assistant at the Kotler Ice Arena. Recently Miranda accepted the position of Rink Director, working with the rink staff to direct strategic planning, administration and program development at the Kotler Ice Arena. Miranda spends her free time exploring the wild areas of Teton Valley with her two young sons Rowan and Bridger, husband Brian, and her beloved hound dog Leroy.
Music on Main Program Director
Raised in the small mountain town of Bethel, ME, Kate spent her winters skiing at Sunday River and summers on southern Maine’s lakes and beaches. Her parents were involved with local events, which sparked her love for community gatherings. After graduating from the University of Southern Maine with a Communication and Media Studies degree, Kate stayed in Portland to pursue her career interests. She was drawn to working for live music venues, including Maine State Pier, State Theater and Port City Music Hall. Eventually she landed at Thompson’s Point as the Assistant Bar Manager, while also working full time as a Special Education Ed Tech III at Falmouth Public Schools. One vacation to Teton Valley was all it took to steal her heart away. After moving to Jackson in 2018, Kate immediately connected with the magic of Music on Main. She reached out during 2020 to help work on the Music on Mainstream event with TVF, and a few months later proudly accepted the position of Program Director for Music on Main. A new resident of Victor, Kate can often be found playing any type of board game with friends, attempting to stay on top of her paddle board while floating the Teton River, and spending time with her partner Jay, their sweet pup Luna and their parakeets Dwayne and Garth.
Hans was born in Alliance, Nebraska, and grew up in Michigan, Minnesota and finally Jackson, Wyoming. He began his hockey experience in Minnesota playing youth hockey and even going to the State Championships as a squirt. Other than a few outside rinks in Jackson there was no organized hockey in Jackson Hole so he took up cross-country ski racing. He did play some hockey when he lived in Montana, but picked it back up in Teton Valley in the early pond hockey days. He has been coaching youth hockey for the last 5 years, and playing goalie for the last few years in the adult league. Hans received his B.S. in Motion Picture and Television Production at Montana State University in 1990 and took a job in Missoula, Montana with the USFS Missoula Technology and Development Center producing training films and technical guides. He returned to Jackson and Teton Valley and started a carpentry and construction company. In 2007 he accepted a job with Teton County Fire Department, where he became a certified fire-fighter, engineer and EMT. Not long after starting he achieved his Paramedic licensing in Idaho and Wyoming and became a Captain with the Department. He retired in 2019 to concentrate on his family and support his wife’s education and new career as a Certified Nurse Midwife. He is married with two young children and enjoys hunting, fishing and camping with his family, and of course trying to play as much hockey as time allows. This is his 2nd season as Rink Manager.
