Carson Wentz’s girlfriend hails from North Dakota and attended Concordia College. Since Carson attended North Dakota State, they lived a mere 4 miles from each other throughout their time in school. A visit is possible after a quick drive through Fargo. In a September 20, 2016 article from The New York Post, the paper described the couple as high school sweethearts. Melissa competed in cross country in all four years at college. According to the article, she also “won’t hesitate to take his phone away during date nights” because Carson tends to want to focus on game footage.
Based on the description in the article, Wentz spends large amounts of time working on his game. The North Dakota State offensive coordinator told the paper he will spend 80 hours per week working if he knows his competitor spends 60 per week. It also mentioned his girlfriend and faithful dog. Of course, now Carson Wentz’s girlfriend can spend time with not one but two faithful dogs. Carson owns two Golden Retrievers named Henley and Jersey. The two dogs help him on expeditions in the offseason since he loves to be outside and hunt. He frequently posts pictures of himself in hunting gear with compound bows and kills.
According to an April 12, 2016 article by ESPN, Carson Wentz’s girlfriend lives separately from him until they marry. Since they are both deeply religious, it is important to both Carson and Melissa not to live together until they tie the knot. Melissa herself still works at a healthcare office in Fargo, based on her social media profile. Previously, she worked at a chain restaurant. She now calls Moorhead, Minnesota home. She earned her degree to become a registered nurse, and she values the role highly. Like Carter, she also enjoys hunting and hiking. Being outside is an essential part of their lifestyles.
Based on Melissa’s old bio sheet from her time at Concordia College, we know some stats on Carson Wentz’s girlfriend. She stands 5’10” and says her favorite food is noodles. Her favorite movie is “Coach Carter” and says her favorite show is “Friends”. She enjoys volleyball even though she never played competitively in college. Melissa also mentioned that she considers herself relatively talented in art. She included skydiving as something to cross off her bucket list. On her social media profile, she says she is not defined by the mistakes she has made. She also grew up with two sisters.
