Melissa & Adam July 23, 2011

Congratulations to the bride and groom!

Our Story

We met in 2008 when Adam played football at the University of Sioux Falls and Melissa cheered for the USF football team. Actually, the evening we met, Adam explained how he was planning to transfer to the University of Minnesota. Specifically, he hoped to get into their Kinesiology program with plans of eventually becoming a Physical Therapist. Ironically, Melissa was currently in the process of applying to the U of M's Masters in Occupational Therapy Program. A few weeks later, they made a trip together to tour the U of M campus and spent nearly every day together from that point on! Adam will be graduating this spring from the U with a B.S. in Kinesiology and Melissa will be finishing her M.S. in Occupational Therapy. As you can see, we compliment each other in many ways!

Our Interests and Goals

We both have a strong passion for helping those in need! We hope to someday go on healthcare mission trips to 3rd world countries. We enjoy watching and participating in athletic events, camping/being outdoors, music, playing games, days at the lake, and spending time with family & friends.
