As your local State Farm Agent and an involved Tuscaloosa resident, I’m proud to protect our community. I was born and raised in Long Beach, Mississippi and attended Mississippi State University where I played collegiate baseball. After graduating from college, I was a pitcher in Major League Baseball for 15 years. I also played professionally in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. On the weekends, you can catch me hanging out with my wife and our four kids. My favorite thing about this community is small local business owners networking and supporting each other.

I coached college baseball for five years before opening the doors to my State Farm office in Tuscaloosa in June of 2015! My team has earned awards both companywide by providing quality customer service and reliable insurance – including State Farm Ambassador Travel and State Farm Honor Club.

Lori Patton

Customer Service Representative

I was born and raised in Tuscaloosa, AL and truly enjoy hometown life.  I have worked in a retail setting for 28 years and in 2021, I branched out into insurance as a Customer Service Representative, along with holding a license in Home and Auto. Communicating with and getting to know customers is my favorite part of any job. We have 4 children so not sure what spare time is but it is all about family! My husband and I also started a Christmas Tree Farm this past year and are enjoying learning and working through that as well.

Account Representative

I was born and raised in the great city of Tuscaloosa. I love of all things Crimson Tide! I attended the University of Alabama (UA) and earned graduate and undergraduate degrees. I taught at UA for 13 years, serving a diverse group of students. As a licensed insurance salesman, I can carry this love of people and community into everything I do. I look forward to serving you and protecting you and your family.
