We want to make sure that you understand your insurance policies, and how they work for you and your family.

My State Farm career began shortly after my graduation from Southeastern Louisiana University while working for an agent in Donaldsonville.  In 2006, I became a State Farm agent myself and opened up my first agency in Lockport.  In 2020, I was awarded the opportunity by State Farm to open a second agency located in Thibodaux.

Using my degree in Finance, I am also happy to help you develop your financial goals and chart a course for your success.  Not only I am a licensed insurance agent, but I am also a Rocket Pro Loan Originator for the State of Louisiana. 

Being a Lafourche Parish resident, I understand the people here and what they expect from their agent. I am a proud supporter of our local schools, churches, athletic programs, and various charities and organizations.

Customer Service Representative

I have been in the insurance industry since 28, having 27 1/2 of those years of working for State Farm agents. I became part of James's team in 2007, after a long-time agent retired. I currently serve as a Customer Service Representative, assisting customers with any insurance policy questions and writing policies for any insurance needs that may arise.

I am happily married and together with my husband, we have two adult children, and 4 grandchildren, and 1 great-grandchild. When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, gardening and traveling with my husband. We especially enjoy any type of mountain vacations. My mantra is "Life's an Adventure!"

Insurance Account Representative

I have been in the insurance industry since 1984 when I got my first job out of high school. In 1996, I began working for a State Farm agent in Thibodaux, and joined James's team in 2009 after he opened his agency in Lockport, allowing me to be closer to home. I have served many different roles throughout the years, and currently help customers with any and all insurance needs and questions that they may have. My passion is assisting customers with Life Insurance to protect their loved ones.

I am a proud mom of two adult children, and I am happily married to my wonderful husband. On my spare time, I love to travel to new places, especially the beach, and go camping with friends and family. I also enjoy shopping, and absolutely love all things shoes!

Aimee Adams

Office Representative

My career working with State Farm began when we opened the doors to our Lockport agency in 2006. When James opened up his second location in Thibodaux, I was the given the opportunity to work at both locations, forging relationships with the staff and people from both offices.

I had the pleasure of assisting many customers throughout my 15 years with the agency, serving in several different roles-- from receptionist, to claims, and now currently serving as the business office manager for both locations doing many behind-the-scenes tasks.

I grew up in Vacherie, were I currently reside today with my husband, James, and our two children. In my spare time, I like to spend time with family, decorate and design, and take vacations.
