Orion Marty State Farm Agent Team Member

Orion Marty

Office Manager

Hello! My name is Orion Marty and I am the Senior Accounts & Agency Manager 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.

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! I am licensed in multiple states, so can assist not only in Illinois but also Missouri, Kentucky and Iowa with auto, home, life, health and commercial insurance!

Ashley Barnes State Farm Agent Team Member

Ashley Barnes

Customer Service Representative

Hi there! I'm Ashley! Native to Central Illinois, I have spent a majority of my working life in the customer service world - some of that time working within the auto, home and health insurance industry early on. I'm mom to the coolest little boy on the planet, very much into gardening and plants, a book worm and love to cook & bake!

My role with Damon Priddy State Farm is taking care of our customers, anything from payments, claims, policy questions... and anything/everything in between! I look forward to working with you!

Curtis Bradford State Farm Agent Team Member

Curtis Bradford

Customer Service Representative

Hello, my name is Curtis Bradford, but you may hear or notice I address myself as “Curt.” I am a Customer Service Representative here at Damon Priddy State Farm! I am originally from Springfield, IL but moved to San Diego, CA when I was about six. I am Mid-Western at heart but truly a San Diegan. What brought me back to Springfield is family, which lead to my wife and daughter coming back with me.

I enjoy spending every moment I can get with my amazing wife and beautiful daughter. We find ourselves mostly outdoors consuming the beautiful sun that stands over us. Although San Diego has amazing weather, we are doing our hardest to adapt to Springfield’s questionable weather. If for some reason we do not have the opportunity to be outside, we watch movies, shows and are most likely having fun keeping our little one entertained.

Throughout my career in insurance, I have always managed putting Customer Support at the top of my list. Building a rapport with those I talk with is a huge goal of mine with many others. My Goal at Damon Priddy’s is to provide excellent service. To me excellent service is listening to your needs, thoughts and even what might be happening during the week with your family or self. Therefore, being attentive and supportive with a smile goes along way whether the day is good or bad for you. No one likes a robot or automative system speaking or directing them, so have no worry when speaking with me. I hold a great conversation.

Looking forward to answering your questions and honoring you that peace-of-mind you deserve!
