About Me

Your Local Springfield State Farm Agent! Serving the states of ILLINOIS, MISSOURI, IOWA & KENTUCKY!

Hi Neighbors! The Damon Priddy State Farm Team is proud to serve the Greater Springfield area as well as the entire states of Illinois, Missouri, Iowa and Kentucky with Auto Insurance, Homeowners/Condo/Renters Insurance, Life Insurance, Health, Pet Insurance and Small Business Insurance & Financial Services!

With a background in the hospitality industry, taking care of people is part of who Damon became early on in his career. What drew him to Start Farm was the opportunity to do more than just take care of people but to truly make a difference in a person’s everyday life. Being a State Farm Agent provides the opportunity to change lives for the better every single day, leaving our customers and the people we meet in a better situation than when we first met.

When Damon is not in the office you will find him gardening and doing yard work (which he finds oddly relaxing), spending time with family on one of their crazy weekend road trips or enjoying all that our community has to offer whether its hanging at the park or at a downtown street fest! The Priddy family stays very active in the local community and is member of the local Chamber of Commerce and the Local First Springfield organization. Damon is also the founder and president of the Petersburg Veterans Memorial Park non-profit organization and fund.

Our team does things just a little differently. Our top priority is risk management and future planning through education, consultation and advisement. Although we’re very efficient at what we do, we do not focus on pushing quotes out in 15 minutes or less. The customers that we know better, we can protect better! For this reason we feel it is very important to keep up with our customers ever changing needs. We hope to get to know you!

Give us a call if you're in the Springfield, Chatham, Pleasant Plains, Petersburg, Athens, New Berlin or surrounding Illinois areas! We're also happy to help in Missouri, Iowa and Kentucky... so St. Louis, Kansas City, The Ozarks, Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Quad Cities, Louisville... we've got you covered! We are a family of highly skilled professionals here to help!

Kaya RenCountre

Office Manager

Hi, I'm Kaya! My role at the office as Office & Service Manager is to ensure you, our customers, receive great service from just coming on board with the State Farm family all the way through with payments, claims, questions and more! I am originally from Springfield and now live in Petersburg. My other title outside of the office is "Aaron's Mom"... my little guy who just started 2nd grade!

Ross Buie

Insurance Account Representative

Hello! My name is Ross and I am an Insurance Accounts Representative with the Damon Priddy State Farm Team! I was born and raised in Tallula, Illinois and have lived in Menard County my entire life. I have been working hard my entire life from the young age of 16. In 2014 I enlisted in the Army Reserve. After graduating basic training, I started working as a part-time stock associate with a local big-box retailer, quickly working my way up to Assistant Store Manager.

In 2020 I was deployed to Kuwait with the 236th Inland Cargo Transfer Company. This is where I really gained a new perspective on my life, deciding to make a career change when I returned home. Upon my return in early 2021 I became licensed in Life, Health, Property and Casualty, before accepting the position that I am in today.

In my free time I like to maintain my physical readiness and participate in group sport activities, as well as spend time with those closest to me. My goal as an Insurance Accounts Representative is to help my customers understand the various types of insurance and options that can protect them from the risk of every day life.

Mikaela Bennett-Bateman

Customer Relations Representative

Hello, I’m Mikaela! I’m an Insurance Accounts Representative with the Damon Priddy State Farm Team. I was born in Phoenix, Arizona but moved to Central Illinois at age 2, and have been here ever since! I’ve worked a variety of different jobs starting at age 16 all the way through college. I’ve done everything from lifeguarding, to retail, to tutoring. In 2017, I graduated from Springfield Southeast High School and attended the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign for two and a half years. I started out undecided in my major and considered multiple different options throughout my time there.

In May 2020, I had my son Jaxson and decided to take a break from school until I figured out what I really wanted to do. Now, I am trying out yet another new experience in the insurance and financial industry. Since being offered a position in Damon’s office, I have realized that this is the first job that I have truly been passionate about. Every day, I look forward to coming into work and helping to keep our customers protected!

My goal as an Insurance Accounts Representative is to help every customer I work with to make sure they have the proper coverage for their unique needs! When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my son and family. We love to go swimming, and take walks around the park when it’s nice out.

Orion Marty

Insurance Account Representative

Hello! My name is Orion Marty and I am an Insurance Accounts Representative with Damon Priddy State Farm. I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas until I moved to Springfield, Illinois in the summer of 2018. What brought me to Illinois was Illinois Wesleyan University, where I played four years of Division 3 soccer and loved every minute of it. I graduated with a B.S in Marketing which led me to continue my education at the University of Illinois Springfield where I am currently working to obtain my MBA.

 Soccer continues to be a big part of my life as I play on indoor teams and watch as many games as I can on the weekends. I like to stay active by playing sports but I also love to sit on the couch and watch a great movie with my two dogs. Have any good movie recommendations for me? I would love to have you come by and share those with me at the office!

 Insurance has been in my family for multiple generations and I have seen what a rewarding career it can be. Helping you understanding the insurance process, making sure you are covered and insuring your future financial security are all priorities for me here at Damon Priddy State Farm!
