Alyssa Shelley State Farm Agent Team Member

Alyssa Shelley

I was born in Vicksburg, MS, but raised in the small town of Winnsboro in Northeast Louisiana. I am a proud alumnus of Louisiana State University... Geaux Tigers. My husband and I, along with our 3 pups (Tiger, Twix & Bruno) recently relocated to Arkansas to be closer to the mountains and nature. We love being outdoors, traveling, hiking, and tackling new adventures. I started working for State Farm while in college in 2013, and changed my entire life plan to align more closely to the insurance industry. I have a heart for helping people through the good and the bad, and working for Matthew Gant State Farm allows me to do that. I work remotely for Matthew’s office, mostly behind the scenes. While you may not see me, I am here and happy to help you!
