Melissa Nisonger has been a part of the Westminster community for 20 years. She ensures quality service to students, faculty, and staff by providing attentive, timely, accurate, readable, and clear appraisals of incoming transfer credit and explanations of college policies and procedures. She manages non-routine registrations and records changes, maintains and organizes records, and prepares reports. Melissa represents Westminster College in the Utah State Articulation Committee, a statewide group that meets to discuss and improve policies and processes related to transfer credits.
Melissa occasionally brings her dog and a pet bunny, affectionately named FERPA, into the office. Melissa is truly a renaissance woman. She grows and cans much of her own food, bakes wonderful breads, is a master knitter (involved with a knitting group that meets in Giovale Library), and makes beautiful pottery pieces. Her raised garden beds and prolific gardens are a thing of beauty. She has a soft spot for all furry and feathered friends, and has raised chickens, rabbits, dogs, and cats—many of which were rescued from deplorable conditions. Most recently, Melissa and her partner, Luke, completed five years of working with Raptor Inventory Nest Survey (RINS).
