Megan Mummert

Client Care Specialist

Early Years: One, Big, Happy Family

Born and raised in Maryland, Megan moved to Carroll County when she was just six years old. She was the eldest of two girls, but her family quickly grew after her parents divorced and re-married. Two stepbrothers, three stepsisters and an additional little half-brother later, they became the "Almost Brady Bunch." She played soccer, basketball, and even tried her pom-poms at cheerleading, but ditched them for Karate, which she had started at age 12. She earned her Black Belt at 16.

What We Know: She's a Care Bear

Megan majored in Adolescent Psychology at University Maryland College Park for one semester before transferring to Carroll Community College, where she intended to pursue a nursing degree in Pediatric Oncology. "I kept getting waitlisted, so to get my foot in the medical field, I decided to start at Medix Towson to become a Certified Medical Assistant and Certified Phlebotomist," she explains. She began her clinical career working for a Cardiology/Internal Medicine practice before moving on to Podiatry and Surgery. Luckily for us, her career path changed when she moved to billing and collections for Maxim Healthcare, where she was voted Employee of the Year for 2016. Today, she is a proud EBS-er!

Fun Facts

Inked up: I LOVE tattoos and have around 20 (I lost count after a while). And yes, I have plans for several more.

Picture This: I love photography and do photoshoots in my free time.

My Babies: I have an obsession with pugs and have 2 fur boys, Pierre Francois and Bruno Samartino.

Matters of the Heart: I was best friends with my husband for three years before we both broke up with our significant others and he confessed he had been in love with me all along. We immediately started dating and he proposed to me during a visit to romantic St. Thomas at Magen's Bay in 2011.

Encore!: I played clarinet for 10 years and was first chair all throughout middle and high school. In high school, I was a competitive belly dancer.

Scott Melson

Client Advisor

Early years

Give him an "O!" Give him an "R"! Give him an "I"! Oh heck, let's just say Scott loved going to Orioles games as a kid. Like, practically since birth. He is also the son of a marathon runner, so he had plenty of opportunities to get his Forrest Gump on as a kid. His sporty days continued while attending Damascus High School, including playing baseball and football. To this day, he still loves fitting a long distance run or backpack adventure with friends in when he can.

What we know about Scott

Scott's pretty good at performing "marathon workdays", too. We can attest to that. "I love my job and how it gives me the opportunity to meet new people and help put businesses in a better place," he affirms. With four children under the age of 7, he stays busy at home, too! "Life is insane," he confirms, "And I love it. I'm also an Elder at Shady Grove Presbyterian Church and love to work with people in the congregation."

Fun Facts

Kicking It: I am a "bloody" huge Arsenal Football Club fan.  

The Good Life: Scotch, a Cigar, and a fire pit. Makes a night good.  

Jump Start:  As a freshman, I joined friends who noticed kids jumping off a bridge in a town that a friend just moved to. A few bloody noses later after jumping off the top, the other kids told us (with wide eyes) they only ever jumped off of the support beams, 40 feet below us!

Ana Reza

Client Coordinator

Early years

The Baby of the Family

Born and raised in Hyattsville, Maryland, Ana (aka Bird) was the youngest of three. She is best friends with her sister, though they are six years apart, and she and her brother are considered Irish Twins. Ana was a dedicated student and rowed crew in high school, but she also had a wild side? Ana pierced her nose over six times during school. Since piercings were against school rules, she had to take it out whenever she got caught. What a rebel!

What we know about Ana

The Perfect Work-Life Balance

Before starting her new career at EBS, Ana worked as a breastfeeding counselor at Women Infant Children (WIC), a non-profit, community-based healthcare agency and then took on a role at a cemetery (Parklawn Memorial Park). She now shares her time with our team at EBS and her 8-year-old daughter Ava Rose. Ava loves to play in the park and always keeps Ana on her toes.

Fun Facts

My Feline Best-Friend: I have a cat named Squeeky, who is 23 years old and still going strong!

Confessions of a Shopaholic: I will let you in on a little secret - I often shop for clothes for my already-full closet, and you can frequently catch me buying home décor for my future home.

My Baby Bird: After 32 hours of labor, I named my baby girl, Ava. My family nickname has always been Bird, and Ava means bird in Latin. Ironically, the name is also a 3-letter palindrome, like mine!

Abigail Bands

Administrative Assistant

Early Years: Game Rules

Abigail was raised in Bel Air, Maryland and lived with her mom, dad, and one sister. Growing up, sports were not her favorite. "I faked a lot of injuries to get out of soccer back in the day," she admits. Hanging out with her friends was fun and all, but when it came to playing, she just didn't have much interest in being in the game. On the other hand, she was a real sport when it came to her behavior. "I was quite the rule follower and did everything I could to stay out of trouble!" A good trait to have in the insurance business!

What We Know about Abigail: Work & The City

Abigail graduated from Towson University in 2014 with a dual degree in Early Childhood Education and Special Education. After graduation she was a teacher for four years - two years as a special needs teacher and two years ruling a second-grade classroom. "I lived in the city for a few years after graduation and loved every minute of it," she pines. Still, she moved to the county last summer. "I feel so thankful to work downtown so that I still get a little taste of city living!"

Abigail was married in November 2017. She and her husband are the proud parents of a golden retriever named Frannie - the family favorite!

Fun Facts

She Goes the Distance: I ran the Baltimore Marathon in 2015.

She Knows When to Draw the Line: Almost always! 75% of my closet is made up of striped clothing.

Happy Meals: I'm a picky eater! My favorite foods are consistent with the diet of a five-year-old!
