My wife, Linda, and I raised our grown children in Blue Springs, and have lived here for over 45 years. We enjoy traveling or spending time with our three gorgeous grandchildren. We have also considered Lees Summit, Grain Valley, and Independence our home for all these years as well, as we spent quite a bit of time there.

I thoroughly enjoy being a State Farm Agent. At our office, we have an amazing team who I consider part of my family. I handle a lot of my family’s insurance, as I know that nobody would take greater care of them, than my team and I. By that same token, I treat our customers just like they are part of my family as well. We would love to have you and your loved ones join that family!

Terry and his wife Janet have lived in Blue Springs since 1986 and will celebrate their 41st wedding anniversary this year. They have two grown sons, two great daughter-in-laws, and four grandchildren that live in the Kansas City area.

Bethany is the newest member of our team, but she has already been with us for a little over a year. She comes in with a great knowledge of the industry as she has had previous experience with auto insurance, home insurance, and renters’ insurance.

Bethany graduated from Raytown High School, so she is familiar with the Kansas City area. She is a lover of the arts, both fine and visual. She has a passion for reading, and you may have seen her playing pool here in Blue Springs. Along with her significant other, Zane, they have two beautiful children, a 9-year-old girl, and a 2-year-old son. They also have a 7-year-old Scottie, Marley.

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!
