Insurance Agent

Melissa joined the Gateway team after retiring in 2015 from a twenty-five-year career in school nutrition and cafeteria management in the Bristol TN City School system. Melissa was a member of the Tennessee School Food Service Association (TSFSA) for 15 years.   Melissa decided to pursue a career in insurance after encouragement from friends and family who had positive experiences with their insurance agent. Melissa's parents have had the same insurance agent for forty years and she has seen the personal impact of having a dynamic, caring, compassionate and knowledgeable agent. Melissa believes in serving her clients well and helping them to have those same meaningful and beneficial experiences as well. Melissa believes that clients should feel confident with their agent and comfortable with the options and choices that directly impact quality of life for individuals and their families.

Melissa is a licensed insurance producer in Tennessee, Virginia, and North Carolina in Life, Health, and Annuity. She is certified in American Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), and has extensive training and certifications in Medicare, Fraud and Waste Abuse, Ethics, Long Term Care, and Understanding Annuities.  Melissa is always learning and training to better serve her clients.

Melissa has always been very active among the church, focusing on the Senior Ministries and Children's Ministries. Melissa has participated in several Community Outreaches and volunteering for the Church Food Bank.  Melissa has also volunteered her time to Habitat for Humanity and Serving meals to the homeless.  She has been married to her husband Michael for twenty-four years and they have one son Seth and a beloved Westie terrier named Lily.
