"Top Brass"

Melissa Ems

Owner, Advisor


As the ringleader of this merry band of agents, I wear many hats. While I can bore you with the details of what my day looks like within the confines of the 3446, I will skip right to the much more interesting parts of me.  I am a rare breed of St. Pete native who’s various positions in insurance – including claims, agency, training, auditing, writing/media and customer service- saw me through 4 different Florida cities including all the way up to the far off land that is the Florida panhandle before coming back home to be closer to family.  I am a sports and travel junkie, an avid shenanigan enthusiast and I have never met a stranger. I love a good spontaneous adventure and have a story for just about everything. If you come into the office, the walls are decorated with photos I have taken on my adventures around the world. I am also very active in the German community. I love anything outside and can usually be found on my paddleboard or bike while at home, but give me a pair of skis and a mountain out west and I’m the happiest kid in the world!
