Mel Nicnick

Caption Editor

Born and raised in sunny Miami, Florida, it was a wake-up call for Melissa when she moved to Ames, Iowa, in 1996 to attend Iowa State University: buy warm clothes (and get a diploma)! She graduated in 2000 with a B.A. in English with emphasis in rhetoric and professional communication. Somehow now used to snow, armored in Cuddl Duds, and in the company of now-husband Joe "I'm from there!" Shelton, Mel decided not to go back to Florida after she graduated. Instead she found a too-good-to-be-true job at CaptionMax in Minneapolis and decided to test her patience with Minnesota winters...No comment. The summers are great, though.

When not thoroughly enjoying her job at CaptionMax, Mel's interests include, but are not limited to, crossword puzzles, listening to music, reading (horror, fantasy), playing on the computer, and yelling--uh, speaking nicely to her well-behaved (not!) cats.

The craziest thing Mel has done is take a trip to the 2009 Roskilde music festival in Denmark simply because her favorite band ever, Faith No More, was playing there. Mel has a connection to Denmark because her grandmother is Danish. So she and her younger sister embarked on this amazing trip to see FNM and also meet up with a few relatives who had met Mel when she was three but hadn't seen her since. It was a wonderful experience, and Mel and her sister can't wait to go back!
