Welcome to Shannon Rikard State Farm Agency in Columbia, SC!  My team and I are honored to serve and take care of the people of South Carolina.  We take a “hometown” approach, where we strive to know everyone by name!  We pride ourselves in excellence when it comes to taking care of our customers.  Our goal is to make you feel welcome and important when you need us!

We are passionate about educating our customers and making sure we can take care of their individual needs.  We do things different here.  We consider ourselves to be risk managers and our job is to help you protect what you've worked so hard for.  We love being a resource to those moving to Columbia, Irmo, Chapin, Lexington and the surrounding area!

I was born and raised right down the road in Lexington, SC.  I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Business Administration, and immediately went to work for a State Farm agent upon graduation.  I’m proud to say I opened up my State Farm agency in 2015 in the place I have always called home!  My husband, Preston, and I love anything to do with the outdoors!  He is passionate about bass fishing, so we spend a lot of time on Lake Murray! We have 3 young children who keep us busy in our day to day lives and we wouldn’t have it any other way!  We are so fortunate to be surrounded by so much family where we live.  We’re happy to have a business in the place we have both always called home.

Originally hailing from Florida, I moved to Columbia in 2016 after graduating from the University of Florida. Being an avid outdoorsman, the most common places you can find me spending free time are hiking, cycling, and on the disc golf course!I live with my girlfriend Emily and our two crazy pups, Gadius and Stella. You can frequently catch us all at the dog parks around town most evenings.

I was born and raised in Lexington, SC and am thankful to still call Lexington home. My husband Jay and I have two young children, one golden retriever, and a shared love of the South Carolina Gamecocks. I love reading and spending time with my family, and my heart belongs at the beach. I have worked with State Farm since 2014 and assist with billing and service.
