RaeAnne Bennett

Insurance Account Representative

I graduated from IUP with a Bachelor's Degree in Criminology in 2013. My time there taught me so many things that I have been using daily at State Farm for the past six years. My favorite part of working at State Farm is the pleasant work environment. It's nice to be able to laugh and enjoy your time at work. Other than my family, my great loves are hiking and photography. I'm always ready for an adventure!


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.


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!


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.
