Melissa earned a Bachelor of Science in communications from Northern Arizona University and moved to Colorado on Super Bowl Sunday in 1999.
She has been in the insurance industry since 2002 and opened the Rippy Agency November 1st, 2013. She has an extensive claims background which provides invaluable knowledge for coverage discussions and claims guidance with each Customer. Melissa has years of risk management experience, providing an additional strength when it comes to helping individuals and families manage daily risk.
Knowing the local families that make up our community is at the core of the Rippy Agency, and giving back to the community is extremely important to Melissa. The Rippy Agency annually honors a Brighton High Senior with a $1,000 scholarship. Melissa is a supporter of the Boys & Girls Club, a volunteer and mentor with Junior Achievement, and served on the non-profit boards of the 27J Education Foundation, Brighton Legacy Foundation and Brighton Shares the Harvest. In February of 2018, Melissa also co-founded "Ripbeams", a non-profit in memory of her dad in which hand made beanies are collected and given to kids with leukemia.
For 11 years, Melissa investigated car claims in which she assisted parties involved in resolving damages and/or the claim, but she couldn't change the outcome. As a business owner, she utilizes her claims background to help through safe driving education. On an annual basis, Melissa provides safe driving education to students at Brighton High School and many other local community events, encouraging drivers to "X the Text" and not text and drive.
In 2014, the Rippy Agency was named Business of the Year People’s Choice Award by the Brighton Chamber of Commerce. They are also members of the Fort Lupton Chamber, Keenesburg Chamber, Southeast Weld Chamber and the Erie Chamber.
As a business leader and involved citizen in the Denver Metro area, Allstate agency owner Melissa Rippy was designated an Allstate Premier Agency for 2017. The Allstate Premiere Agency designation is earned by 26 percent of Allstate's nearly 10,000 agency owners across the country and 22 percent of Allstate's Colorado agencies who have demonstrated excellence in delivering an accessible, knowledgeable and personal customer experience while achieving outstanding business results.
