My wife, Linda, and I have lived in Blue Springs, Missouri for over 45 years, and raised our two children here. We enjoy traveling as well as spending time with our three beautiful grandchildren.

I really enjoy being a State Farm Agent. We have a well-established team who I think of as family. I care for a lot of my relatives because I know that nobody will take better care of them than me and my team. By that same token, I like to treat our customers as family too. We would love to add you and your loved ones to our State Farm family!

At Steve Shipman’s State Farm, we understand that insurance can be unclear and frustrating. We would be ecstatic to be able to assist you with your individual insurance and financial services.

Grateful for her insurance background, Bethany is looking forward to growing within our agency and further developing her relationships with our insureds.

Linda Shipman State Farm Agent Team Member

Linda Shipman

Office Manager

As Steve often refers to me, I am his "first wife" or his "favorite wife". Actually I am his only wife. We met in college where I got my business administration degree. We have been married for 48 years so I have always been around and involved, but most of the early years I was at home raising our two kids. When our youngest went to college, my career really began. Although I am licensed to help you with your auto insurance and home insurance, my job is Office Manager. I primarily take care of payroll, paying bills, supplies, and writing scripts like this! Anything non-insurance. Since many of our insureds are our friends or have become our friends, I love seeing them when they come in the office. And I love to help whenever I can. Please stop in to see us or give us a call. We are here to help make life go right!
