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!
