About Me

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 staff 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!

Here at Steve Shipman’s State Farm Agency, we know that insurance can be both confusing and frustrating. We hope to be able to help you with your unique insurance and financial needs. Give us a call today for a free insurance quote, and learn how you can bundle your home and auto insurance today. We can also help you if you are relocating to the Kansas City Metro Area, both in Missouri and Kansas. Feel free to reach out to us via phone call, text, email, or even stop into the office. We would love to meet you! Whether you call, stop by, text, or email, we would be glad to help you learn about life insurance or how to protect your family from any unexpected situations.

Paige has lived near the Kansas City area her entire life. She graduated from Odessa High School and Metropolitan Community College. Paige was pretty recently married to her husband Nick in April of 2022. She LOVES animals, especially dogs. She is “mama” to two beautiful labs, Cleatis and Remi. She also loves the outdoors and spends her free time camping and off-roading.

Paige has been with our office a little over 5 years and works daily with auto insurance, and home insurance, as well as renters insurance and rental property insurance. Since she loves the outdoors, boat insurance, ATV/UTV insurance, and travel trailer insurance is right up her alley. Paige is also licensed in life insurance and loves to help those who wish to protest their families from the unexpected!

Steve likes to refer to Terry as his “New Intern” even though Terry has over 30 years in the insurance business and has the Associated Risk Management designation. Terry focused on the Flood industry in the last part of his corporate career. He enjoys helping people understand their insurance coverage's and talking about their financial goals.

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 three grandchildren that live in the Kansas City area.

Terry would love to have you come by and get a cup of coffee or a bottle of water and discuss your financial needs so he can get to know you and your family!

Bethany Morrison State Farm Agent Team Member

Bethany Morrison

Customer Service Representative

Bethany is the newest member of our team, but she has already been with us for about nine months. 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 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 47 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!
