Kate Meyers

Managing Agent

Kate celebrated 23 years with First State Insurance in May of 2020! She loves the crop insurance aspect of her career and enjoys working with the farmers while watching their businesses prosper. She feels the farmer’s pain as they struggle through weather-related challenges and the price fluctuations on grain. Kate also enjoys watching their children grow through the local 4-H and through their school activities. This mother of three and grandmother of seven lives on a farm with her husband, Ric. They will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary in November 2020! When Kate’s not working, farming, gardening, or helping with cattle, she loves to hunt, fish, or golf. Her golf score expectations still haven’t lowered and neither has the size of fish that she enjoys catching!
