Welcome to my State Farm office in historic Columbus, GA! Whether you’re in Georgia or Alabama, my team of insurance professionals and I are more than happy to assist you with Auto, Homeowners, Renters, Business, Life & Health, Pet Insurance and any other State Farm policy services in both English and Spanish. My path to becoming a State Farm agent was not a conventional one, to say the least. Upon graduating from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor of Arts, I became a campus minister at the University of Southern Mississippi for six years and then worked in the pharmaceutical industry for about nine years. I eventually became a State Farm agent and opened my agency in 2012 so I could have a more direct impact on my community.

I enjoy building lasting relationships with our neighbors which include but are not limited to Columbus, Phenix City, Midland, Cataula and Ellerslie.

Since day one, my team and I have prioritized doing more than is expected. I enjoy helping people manage their risks and I also like to laugh! Besides serving my community as a State Farm agent, I’m also a Big Brother for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Chattahoochee Valley, a board member for Calvary Christian School and a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA).

When I’m not at the office, I love traveling with family, especially on hiking trips to Colorado. My family and I are also huge University of Georgia Football fans – Go Dawgs! They are back to back national champions.

Make sure to stop by my State Farm office or give my team a call today to get started on a free insurance quote! We look forward to working with you and helping you with your insurance needs and having your join our State Farm Family-the Gemes Team!
