My name is Scott and I am your local State Farm agent. I have been proudly serving the Punxsutawney, Brookville, Reynoldsville, Mahaffey, Rural Valley, and surrounding communities for 34 years! We are here to help when life goes wrong. Rest assured that you would have an experienced team on your side when you need it most. Our office offers auto, homeowners, life, business, health insurance and financial services. My team members are all licensed, qualified insurance professionals with a willingness to help.

As a coffee enthusiast, you will often find me in the office with a nice cup of joe. I enjoy chatting with our customers as well as my employees. One thing you can always count on from me is that I'm happy to have a good laugh. During my time off, you will likely find me at a Steelers, Pirates, or Pitt Panthers game with my family. I also love a good round of golf.

Please contact my team today to see how we can help you with your insurance needs. We are excited to make new business relationships and to see what we can do for you! Remember that quotes are always free! Have a great summer!

Erin Buffington

I was born and raised in Alabama but have been living in the Punxsutawney area for 12 years now and have planted my roots here. I am a mother of two which has taught me so much about patience and kindness, and just how far those two qualities can take you! I love working at State Farm, constantly meeting new people and being in a friendly environment. When I'm not at work I enjoy spending time with my husband and our boys, playing board games and building Lego's!


Tara Juart

Insurance Account Representative

After graduating from IUP, I was a counselor for homeless veterans for three years. That job really helped me develop a love for helping people. I've been able to continue that love through my job here at State Farm for the last nine years. I'm a lifelong resident of Smicksburg, which has ingrained a deep appreciation for the outdoors. Whether I'm hunting, fishing, or enjoying my deck; I'm in my happy place.


Shaelyn Cassatt

Being a mom of six has taught me how to thrive in a fast paced environment like State Farm. I love meeting and working with customers. I am a leader of a cub scout pack, volunteer with the local youth football program, and enjoy a good book!


Tionna Mcmahan

Helping people is a highlight of my life and I try to help as many people as I can everyday. I am fortunate to be able to do that with State Farm and my amazing team members. I was born and raised in Rossiter which instilled a strong sense of community in me. I am a cat mom and I love adventure, whether that be skiing, hiking, or white water rafting.
