Tracy Helm

Account Representative

My name is Tracy Helm and I started in the insurance industry in 2020 at the beginning of Covid. I work hard to help customers with their insurance needs and if there's ever a question that I can't answer I'll do all the research to ensure proper coverage is in place and that the customer understands what types of protections they are paying for. As a mom of five children myself I know how important it is to stretch every dollar you have. I grew up in the Prince George area and I haven't lived anywhere else. My kids go to the same schools I attended as a child and in some cases even had some of the same teachers! I just celebrated my 24th year wedding anniversary and I'm proud to be working for the Van Andersen State Farm agency helping people in the area where I grew up with their insurance needs.
