Melissa Setzer

Client Representative

Dawson is committed to excellence to its clients and its employees. People really matter to this company, on all levels, and that quality is rare, noticeable, and appreciated.

Melissa joined the Dawson Insurance team in August of 2015. She moved to Dawson from the legal field, working as a paralegal and legal secretary for two Fargo, North Dakota law firms in a variety of practice areas, including criminal defense, family law, contract review, and trusts and estates, as well as in legal document processing at Integreon Managed Solutions in Fargo.

Her primary responsibilities include assisting account managers by contacting clients or companies as necessary, processing changes and policies, and providing service to clients and agents. She was drawn to Dawson because “the company has an unparalleled reputation in this region both as a wonderful employer and a stellar company with which to do business”. Noting Dawson’s volunteerism and community involvement, Melissa says it is a privilege to work for such a company.

Melissa resides in Moorhead with her husband, Dan, and their family includes sons Colton and Grant and daughter, Mona. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, going to the lake and fishing in the summer, being a “hockey mom”, machine embroidery and sewing, and reading.
