Melissa Anderson

In 2018, my husband and I moved to Panama City Beach, from South Dakota, sight unseen.  Looking back, it’s our best decision to date. We have a daughter who loves school and fishing, along with 2 dogs that keep us entertained. My journey at 30A Escapes has been amazing! Being the head of New Business Development gives me the luxury of meeting an abundance of new people and the thrill of sharing all the services we offer our homeowners and guests! I appreciate working for a company that promotes and encourages their own employees to soar! I look forward to a long, bountiful relationship with 30A Escapes.

Melissa's favorite restaurant in South Walton is... Farm and Fire Southern Pizzeria - Because of the quint, cozy atmosphere. The food is the best I’ve had in SoWal!

Melissa's favorite beach access is... Inlet Beach, Orange Street - It’s where I first fell in love with the Gulf of Mexico.

Melissa's favorite happy hour spot on 30A is... Amigos at 30Avenue - Because who doesn’t love a good margarita, chips with queso and street corn?!

I am a born and raised local who only feels at home when she is near the beach! After spending six years in AL for college, I could not get back home fast enough! I am married to my middle school sweet heart and we have one daughter, a cat, and five ducks. I was a Property Manager for one season with 30A Escapes but I knew there was more I could do and eventually settled into my Marketing Assistant role. I am happy to be apart of the Marketing Team with 30A Escapes and look forward to the future!

Anna's favorite food spot on 30A is... Great Southern Café in Seaside.

Anna's favorite South Walton beach access is...  Stalworth Public Access - I should not give away my secret but there is little to no parking which makes it hard to get to, but it is worth it!

Minetta Oliver 30A Escapes guest relations

Minetta Oliver

I grew up in the mountains of Northwest Georgia and then lived in Chattanooga, TN for 15 years while earning my Bachelors Degree in Secondary Education: English and Master of Education, Secondary English.  I taught English Language Arts to Middle Schoolers and High Schoolers for 8 years.  I'd come down every break during the 15-16 school year and decided during Winter break, I couldn't keep visiting; the beach is where I must be.  Upon my move to the beach, I decided to start new endeavors.  After spending some time in Community Association Management, I decided to try something where I could still foster long-term relationships but not attend Board meetings.  I was very glad to find 30A Escapes and join this wonderful family. In my free time, you'll find me reading on the beach, kayaking, listening to live music, or playing with our crazy Catahoula Leopard dog, Skye.

Minetta's favorite restaurant on 30A is... Borago, North Beach Social, The Bay, Chanticleer, Red Bar, Local Catch, The Perfect Pig, and Old Florida Fish House.

Minetta's favorite South Walton beach access is... Grayton Beach State Park.  They have lots of parking, nice clean bathrooms, and the Coastal dune lake is right there for kayaking or paddle boarding.

Adam Schlosser

In 2013, my wife and I moved to Panama City Beach (from Wisconsin) on a whim and it turned out to be the best thing we ever did.  Soon after re-locating, I landed a job with a bike rental company on 30A in Seacrest Beach.  Not long after that, I met the owners of 30A Escapes and joined their team the following year.  A couple years later we built a house in Inlet Beach, had 2 boys and the rest is history.  It's great working for a company that promotes from within and I look forward to growing with 30A Escapes for years to come!

Adam's favorite happy hour joint on 30A is...  Local Catch - classic Old-Florida establishment, big cocktail glasses, generous pours, great appetizers and friendly staff!

Adam's favorite South Walton beach access is...  Lupine 1 public access Inlet Beach

Adam's favorite restaurant in South Walton - The Bay - Great food, live music, a private beach, and perfect setting right on the Choctawhatchee Bay.
