It started out with a drum. How did it end up like this? It was only a drum, it was only a drum. 

In 2022, Mel joined the Thunderwall, the percussion section within Wonderwall, and they just can’t seem to get rid of her. Going all in, she joined the Wonderwall board to help with energy, organization, and getting things done.

The true love story is when Mel joined Revontulet, the MN Aurora FC supporters group, building a community from the ground level. Game day, board meeting, or elsewhere, Mel thrives on helping situations and people around her. 

Outside of supporter culture, she can be found raising an only child with her incredible partner in South Mpls. Her home ceramics studio is constantly buzzing with things to do. Her competitive pinball skills could always use practice. And you probably already know she loves to workout.
