Melissa DeVantier is Vice President in the trust department of Nicolet Wealth Management. Melissa practiced as an estate planning attorney for fifteen years prior to joining Nicolet. After completing law school and her MBA program in 2004, her practice focused on estate and succession planning for business owners. Over time, that focus grew to encompass estate planning for clients with complex needs, including blended families, real estate investors, and families looking to implement estate tax and asset protection strategies. Her experience in private practice gives her a unique perspective as she works with Nicolet customers to plan and administer their estate plans.
Melissa and her husband, John, live in Appleton with their three children, Ella, Sam and Lucy, and their golden retriever, Marti. They enjoy hiking, kayaking, watersports, biking, and spending time at their cottage in Minocqua.
Graduating from Valparaiso University in 2001, Melissa moved to Chicago to pursue law school and her MBA from DePaul University. She is a member of the Fox Valley Estate Planning Council, as well as the Estate Planning Council of Northeast Wisconsin.
