The month of February is a time to express love and devotion to those who hold a special place in our hearts, but it's also a reminder to protect the ones we care about. Consider adding life insurance to your planning, ensuring your loved ones are financially secure if something unexpected were to happen.

I am proud to be your State Farm Insurance Agent in Portland, IN. I was born and raised in Randolph County, IN, about 15 miles from the Portland area. I graduated from Indiana Vocational Technical College, and after graduation, began my insurance journey in 1986. With many years of insurance experience, I enjoy every opportunity to help others gain the insurance coverage and knowledge they need to protect themselves and their loved ones.

As a proud grandparent I cherish spending time with my grandchildren, who you might spot in my office from time to time. I enjoy golfing with my husband and have developed a passion for quilting. I love creating quilts and exploring different patterns and designs.

One specific interest within the realm of quilting is working with and collecting featherweight sewing machines. These machines were manufactured from 1933 to 1968 and are known for their portability and efficiency. I so love and appreciate the craftsmanship and history associated with them.

Karmen Ward - State Farm Agency is located at the corner of Walnut and Ship Street in Portland Indian, which is a part of Jay County. We are licensed and serve the entire states of Ohio and Indiana.
