Agency Owner

Melinda Bialke

Melinda has been involved with insurance in various capacities for 20 years with a career spanning across Hartford Life, American Family, and Allstate Insurance.

Her commitment to serving others shines through in her work and the community she serves. She thrives in areas where she can be of service along with protecting clients and their families from lifes uncertainties.

She is a passionate business owner wanting the best for her staff and her clients. She enjoys all things insurance and has a reputation for speaking the truth and listening, while offering solutions to your insurance needs with your best interest in mind.

When Melinda was young, her mother passed away and their family was not prepared for the unexpected costs incurred to the tragedy of the loss. She is dedicated in sharing her story and helping other familes so they are prepared and/or have the knowledge needed if an unfortunate loss occurs.

Outside of work, she enjoys being active (yoga/running), the outdoors, and spending time with her husband, two children, and their mascot “Moxie.” (Golden Doodle). Melinda is entrenched in the local community volunteering in schools, church, and many non-profit organizations that help students, children and families.
