About Me

With all the crazy weather we have been experiencing lately, my customers have been have a lot of questions about how their homes and assets are protected. It gives my agency a lot of joy to educate and empower our customers to thoroughly understand what their coverages are and how State Farm is protecting you like no one else can. There has been a great deal of concern lately about Lake Isabella Dam breaking with the amount of snowfall and rain. Has flood insurance been on your mind lately? Call my office and allow my team to educate you about your property's risk for flood. FEMA's flood policies are often misunderstood, so allow us to educate you and see if purchasing a flood policy is right for you.

Spring is all about new beginnings! Now is the perfect time to really consider what is most important to you and which insurance company is protecting your assets. Having a Family Protection Plan that is unique to your situation and family's goals, is really important. My team is here at your service to listen and learn what matters most to you and how State Farm and my agency can help.

Thank you for your interest in Barney Storms State Farm Insurance. Currently online quoting for auto insurance is unavailable. If you'd like a quote for auto, RV or life insurance please call or text or drop on by our office. My team and I are ready to help with all your insurance and financial needs. I was born and raised in Bakersfield- from a family of 4th generation of Kern County natives. A proud great grandson of a WW2 veteran and grandson of Korean War Veteran. My grandfathers grew up farmers and worked hard to provide an honest living for our family. The blue-collar work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit my grandfather's had, lives on through me. Just like the generations before me, I will further their legacy by creating an insurance destination that was created for the working-class families and business owners of Central California. I graduated from Bakersfield High then went on to Bakersfield College and received my Bachelor of Theology from Summit Bible College. Before becoming an insurance agent for State Farm, I was a server, welder, business development & advertising salesman. My wife Charlotte and I have been married for 10 happy years we have 2 Labradors, River-Lloyd and Remington. We are excited to be expanding our family in the near future, when the good Lord blesses us with children. My hobbies outside of my insurance career involve wine tasting in Paso Robles with my wife, spending time at home with my dogs, cooking for my family, golfing on the weekends with my friends and grandpa, playing softball, bar-b-queuing and cutting firewood.

What I love most about being a State Farm Insurance Agent is my ability to offer our community Family Protection Plans that are suitable to their needs and goals. I have a humble, blue-collar mentality, so talking insurance in a language for people to understand is my strong suit. Kern County offers such a rich and diverse melting pot of people. As I have grown up, I have learned that although we may have different heritages and backgrounds- we have a lot more in common that we do our differences. This community is centered around family and being proud of the dirt on our hands and the sweat from our brows, so having grown up in the oil & gas industry and being raised in a working- class family- I am Kern County’s voice, story and heritage.

I am proud to be your champion, and I would be honored to be your insurance agent that is here for a rainy day, and everything in-between!

Cara Clarke

Account Representative

Hello Good Neighbors! I’m Cara Clarke and I am the newest licensed State Farm team member here at the Barney Storms State Farm team. It’s important to me that our office keeps a happy and stress-free atmosphere which is displayed through our demeanor when working to insure all of our customers. I live locally to the Bakersfield, 93309 zip code and am very involved with many organizations in California. I pride myself in providing great Auto Insurance, Homeowners Insurance, Renters, Property/ Casualty Insurance, and Business Insurance. I love building lasting relationships with the Bakersfield community, by not only providing excellent insurance options, but by also volunteering with many local Bakersfield organizations. I am involved with the Children’s Miracle Network, NOR Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce, the Hispanic Chamber, and the Downtown Business Association. It’s my business to insure all of my family, friends, and partners in the 661 that you all have cost-effective options when bundling for your home or auto insurance. Whether you’re relocating to California, or you’ve been within 30 miles of us this whole time, feel free to give me a call so we can discuss your insurance options going forward.

I am very hardworking so it may seem like I'm only in the insurance office helping each and every customer, but actually, some of my hobbies include cooking, gardening, hiking, and spending time with my family. My favorite part about being a State Farm licensed rep is that I can provide your family with the same protection and coverage that I provide to mine. This includes your furry family too. Me personally...I have 4 cats named Donnie, Daryl, Fletcher, and Stich and 1 husky/shepherd mix named Mishka. When you call to ask how we can help you with your home and auto policies, don’t forget to ask about our pet insurance. Come visit me at the Barney Storm State Farm office located at the corner of Montclair Street and Stockdale Highway today!

Judy Baird State Farm Agent Team Member

Judy Baird

Customer Service Representative

Hello friends, family and Bakersfield residents! My name is Judy Baird and I started my State Farm career working for agent Roger Hess for 20 years. When Roger retired this year, I was elated when Barney Storms asked me to join his State Farm Team. I am a licensed State Farm representative with my licenses in Auto, Home, Business, Life, renters, Property/Casualty insurance. I love being local and grew up going to school in East Bakersfield even attending college at Bakersfield JR college. It’s the perfect place for any family to get started. My parents raised 5 girls with me being 4th in line and my son now has 4 boys with his beautiful wife in the Bay area. If family is as important to you as it is to me, then ask about our Life Insurance policies so they can better be protected during these trying times.

I worked at Kern Schools FCU now known as Valley Strong for 6 years in finance. Then, moved to Kern Federal CU and now Strata Credit Union for 25 years of loan and insurance experience combined. It is at the credit union I first got my insurance license eventually joining the State Farm family.

I love music and dancing as did my parents. The whole family took dance lessons from John Debonaire ballroom. I was a majorette starting in first grade. I loved marching in parades. At Bakersfield college, I was in the Banner Line for a year. I enjoy live concerts, country western and 60’s music.

I am involved with The Cancer Foundation where I am happy to volunteer. My passion for their foundation came from the loss of my two sisters to cancer, and my friend of 60 years. I support Children Hospital in LA and here in Bakersfield as my son was a 28 week 2lb preemie and we stayed at Children hospital in LA for almost 3 months. The Ronald McDonald House is close to my heart also.
