Melissa Elson

Co-Host & Producer, Divine Intimacy Radio

While attending Auburn University, Melissa’s involvement with the Catholic Student Organization fostered her love for the Catholic Church and sparked her desire for a deeper understanding of the Faith. After years of study and working in various capacities for the Church (from youth minister to bookkeeper), in 2006 she went on to earn a Master’s Degree in Systematic Theology from the Notre Dame Graduate School of Christendom College in Alexandria, Virginia. Soon after, she returned to her hometown of Birmingham, Alabama and began her career in Radio production and voice work at EWTN Radio. During that time, Melissa met Dan as he joined the EWTN family and embarked on his radio show, Register Radio. While working at EWTN, Melissa also entered into the sacrament of Marriage with her wonderful husband Michael (a program manager at EWTN) and now has two beautiful daughters, and a son on the way! Melissa has since left EWTN leaving her more time to spend with her children and work on new adventures such as co-hosting Divine Intimacy Radio! When she’s not behind a microphone, Melissa enjoys cooking, reading, music, playing tennis and spending time with family and friends.
