About Me

Thank you for visiting Derek Bird State Farm Agency. I have been a State Farm agent for over 12 years now. I have two offices located in Gretna and Plattsmouth, Nebraska. I am licensed in Property & Casualty, Life and Health, and I also recently acquired CHFC designation. We offer auto insurance, home and renters insurance, life, and health insurance, along with many other lines of insurance. We do also offer financial services which is a part of our holistic planning approach of helping customers prepare the protective plan possible.

A little bit about myself, I was born and raised on ranch in small town Missouri. I have a wonderful wife and 4 amazing children that support me every step of the way! I received my degree in Marketing from the University of Missouri in 2007. After graduation, I started working for a State Farm agent in a suburb of Kansas City, Missouri. In 2009, my family and I moved to Nebraska to start my own agency in Plattsmouth. We started off with a small team in our original Plattsmouth office and now we are a family of 8, with two office locations to serve you. We have a great customer-centric team and all the team members are licensed to serve your insurance needs. Our agency has been engaging and supporting the local community and businesses. We have partnered with Project Hope, Heartland Food, American Red Cross, and local community outreach.

Our ultimate goal is to make sure that our customers are well prepared for any unforeseen situations that could cause any distress. We intend to plan and prepare for the future. We aspire to be that agency that is alongside you at every step of your life starting from your first car to your first home and your journey from there.

Account Manager

Hi, I am Steph. Although I have recently began my journey here in Derek's office after making a move to Omaha, I have been with State Farm since 2018, where most of my time has been spent in Colorado. I am licensed in Property & Casualty, Life, and Health insurance. I am currently wrapping up my bachelor's degree in finance. Although I fell into the insurance world by accident, I have loved every moment of it and am deeply passionate about serving our customers for many, many years to come. When I'm outside of office hours, I am a mom of two girls, 5 & 7, so in my free time you can find me cheering them on at their extracurriculars, having a movie night on the couch, or letting them wear themselves out at Urban Air. I am excited to serve you and continue on the legacy our office provides of being a Good Neighbor to ensure we are always helping life go right.
