Tyler Shank State Farm Insurance holds grand opening

WILLIAMSTOWN — A grand opening for the Tyler Shank State Farm Insurance agency was held Friday at 426 Highland Ave. Ste. A, Williamstown. A ribbon cutting was held at noon.

Shank is the newest of the State Farm agents in Williamstown. The agency opened Sept. 1.

Before becoming a State Farm agent, Shank worked two and a half years assisting customers in a State Farm agency in Harrisville. Prior to that he spent five years at St. Joseph’s Hospital in the Radiology Department.

Shank is a lifelong resident of Wood County and a graduate of Parkersburg South High School.

“I have always loved to help people. After working in the medical field I decided that I wanted to assist people in a different way,” Shank said. “I wanted to be able to put families in a better position to obtain their goals and dreams, while also being there on their worst day to help them recover, if needed. Being an agent with State Farm allows me to do just that.”

Shank’s office includes three staff members, Chantel Rader, Amanda Adams and Shane Wilks. Collectively, they have more than 50 years of customer service.

Shank and his wife, Amanda, have been married five years and have a 1-year-old daughter, Deveny, and are expecting a son in April.
