Meet the Board
Originally from Stratford, Iowa, Melissa Angstrom attended college at Iowa Central Community College in Fort Dodge. In 2006, she moved to Ames to work as a secretary at a residential treatment facility for children. In 2010, she started her career as a legal assistant with the Newbrough Law Firm here in Ames. Melissa loves her job, and considers moving to Ames one of the best decisions she’s ever made.
Melissa’s favorite past time is spending time with my friends and family! That is also one of her favorite parts of the Jaycees, Melissa has met her closest friends through the Jaycees. Melissa also keeps busy working part time for a concession company out of Des Moines. “I get to interact with customers and see and do things I never thought I would (One of the events I work is selling turkey legs at the Iowa State Fair).”
Connect with Melissa if you love live concerts. She loves country, but any live music is good music for her. She has a ton of concerts lined up this year, and would love to talk with you about her favorite, Keith Urban, or any of the many others. She also likes to see and do new things, and would love to hear about your experiences in different parts of the country and the world!
