Hi, my name is Nick Mielke and I was born in Illinois but moved to Selma, Alabama at the age of 10. I am a 38 year old husband and father of 4 (all girls!). I love the outdoors, fun beer, Star Wars, and all other things pop culture. I’ve lived in Montgomery for the last 20 years, a graduate of Huntingdon College, and love seeing this city grow and evolve. By day I work for a local non-profit housing agency and the rest of my time is spent exploring, writing, DIY’ing, and being surrounded by strong amazing women and I wouldn’t trade it for the world!

Hi, I’m Joyce Vaughn. I’m 30 years old and the youngest of four siblings. I like Rocky Road ice cream and karaoke. But, professionally I’m a digital marketing nerd. That means that I spend a lot of time studying and applying innovative tactics on social media and other digital marketing platforms. I’m a proud graduate of the University of Montevallo. There I received a Bachelors of Science degree in retail merchandising with a minor in business.
And, in 2014 I earned my Masters in business administration from Auburn University at Montgomery. I enjoy trailing a good story and sharing the narratives of the people around me. As a South-Carolina-born-and-Alabama-raised southerner, I’ve come to enjoy and love my MGM.
