Meranda Small was raised on a family farm in Grangeville, Idaho, where her family still resides and farms wheat. She attended Blue Mountain Community College, which helped provide applicable hands-on knowledge of agriculture to expand her personal life experience. She continued her schooling at University of Idaho and worked as a research assistant on several livestock focused studies. While finishing her master's, she was selected for an internship position with Agri Beef Co. that lasted a full year before accepting a position with UI Extension.

She now works in Bingham County, where her focus is on livestock education for producers as well as youth in 4-H Youth Development. She lives in Pocatello with her son and husband, who is the general manager of a feed lot in American Falls.
