My name is Nicki, I’m the oldest daughter of Urban and Shelley Meyer and thank God everyday for such loving parents to us and to each other. What a beautiful example to see everyday (I’m getting married in 4 months – so this is really encouraging and exciting for me and Corey – my amazing fiancé!).
I’d consider myself passionate, loving, empathetic, pretty stubborn, outgoing, protective, and just overall a very excited person about life. I love football (most days), coffee, cupcakes (icing only) and good wine . I run a Wellness Company in Ohio, AccelWELL, that brings me more joy than I ever thought a career could. I have my mom’s personality in social settings, but I am my dad to the core when it comes to my work. Not a bad pull of the personalities right?! Spending time with family never gets old to me, I could do it every single night if it was possible (I almost do!).
Football is all I’ve ever known. I was born in Colorado – moved to Notre Dame, followed by Bowling Green, Utah, and then to Florida. I left two years before my family did and played volleyball at Georgia Tech for 4 years – God Bless Atlanta, love that city – and then joined my family in Columbus last June and it’s been amazing. Safe to say I’ve had my share of change in scenery! But wouldn’t change it for the world!
Growing up, I wanted to be a sportscaster, yes, like the next Erin Andrews – but I just knew I could never be objective. I would always be biased and couldn’t hide my true feelings or opinions (thanks Shelley Meyer for that personality trait!). Thankfully for this blog, I now can be honest and transparent and live a small version of that dream!
I’m sure I will be asked, so yes, I am the creator of the pink contract (my one and only claim to fame!) – never in a million years thought that would become what it did – I’m just thankful my dad took it so seriously! I will get into that story another time.
This idea recently was suggested by a good friend and I jumped all over it because I just want to get my perspective out there. I watch the same exact games, hear the same press conferences, watch the same news channels as you, but there is a part of the story the media doesn’t report on and that you don’t get to know about us, and I wish you could, because it doesn’t get enough credit. Obviously I can’t share EVERYTHING, but the things that I know you would enjoy, you will find on here. I have a really incredible family – each one brings a different personality to the table and I can’t wait for you to get to know us for real. Some stuff out there is really good, even accurate. Some we read and laugh wondering where they came up with it and how it’s legally posted. This is raw, real, honest and it will more than likely be entertaining!
*Disclaimer – I did not go to school for journalism, nor was it ever a strength of mine, so please read forgivingly and ignore any mistakes.
Also – be prepared for a wide range of emotions – football has the highest highs and the lowest lows! It’s definitely my goal to share both sides with you – so read with an open mind!
Lastly – please email <firstname.lastname@example.org> with any specific interests and questions I can answer or talk about – haters, go ahead and send the hate mail, I’m really glad social media has given you a chance to abuse people you don’t know – but those of you who are positive, we see you and hear you and are very thankful for you!!
Thanks for reading, and enjoy my point of view on this crazy life!
