Melissa Stallings

Agency Owner

Biography

Melissa L. Stallings, many times known as Missy, established Stallings Insurance Agency in the fall of 2008.

Missy grew up in Marietta/Roswell with 3 siblings, two large dogs and parents that loved her and knew she would excel in everything that she touched. At an early age, Missy stood out from her peers as a young woman with a strong faith, deep family values and a solid determination to succeed.  Missy excelled at Auburn University with two degrees plus being awarded Academic All American for four (4) consecutive years. While an Auburn Gymnast, she competed in every meet, even with injuries.  War Eagle!

Missy’s first large career passage was working for T-Mobile in corporate sales.  In a very short time, she gained recognition and awards for her records and outstanding achievements in the business world.  After leaving T-Mobile, Missy found a passion for insurance at Liberty Mutual.  Soon she realized that she could open an agency, achieve more along with better business and personal life balance. She has never strayed from hard work, being a wonderful manager and surrounding herself with good dedicated employees. Missy is a true gem and walks in the light of God.

Missy has a love for combining her business with giving back to numerous charitable organizations.  In the past she has lifted a hammer to help raise walls in a Habitat Home or packaged shoe boxes for the needy.

Missy married the love of her life, David, in June of 2005. They now have 4 children – Maitlin, Kennedy, Royce, and Amelia. Missy’s spare time (if she has any) is spent with her family (and 2 dogs Jasmine and Belle), at the lake, her church, planning a celebration for someone, carpooling, golf and just being one of the most wonderful people you will ever meet. Her humor and laughter is infectious and everyone around her loves her. She is truly a gift from God!
