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.
