Krista Rogers is becoming a name associated with Alabaster, and with her own State Farm Insurance Agency.

From her spacious office (right below Jim ‘N Nick’s) she and her staff serve the needs of many customers. “The more I am in this role, the more I realize that people do not take the time to see how they are covered and how it can truly affect their lives in the future,” Rogers said. “I really recommend that people just sit down and talk with a licensed professional to make sure they are covered properly. Everyone has different needs.”

Born in Sioux City, Iowa in 1978, Rogers has an older brother and two younger sisters. When her family moved to Texas in the early ‘80s, Rogers had no idea the twists and turns her family would make.

Their home experienced a severe fire when Rogers was 17. Their friend and neighbor was also their State Farm insurance agent, so Rogers experienced not only all the grief involved, but also the total comfort and final adjustments involving their insurance.

“It was very interesting to watch and be associated with this claim. I took more than a casual interest and began to think that insurance, in particular State Farm, was calling my name,” Rogers said.

As a student at Texas A&M, she met and later married Michael, a director with Ingersoll-Rand.

In the 13 years the Rogers have been married, they have moved more than seven times from different Texas locations, to Mobile, Murphreesboro, Tenn., Dallas and finally here to Alabaster.

With golf and baseball being sports of choice for sons Drew, age 9, and Carson, age 6, it’s no wonder this mom loves spring, new life and all that comes with the season.

“It’s hard to leave my boys after being a stay-at-home mom for five years, but it gets easier as they mature and become older,” she said.

A close-knit family, the Rogers attend Prince of Peace Catholic Church.

Krista Rogers is blessed because as she says, “I have a wonderful husband and two healthy boys. Truly it’s all I ever wanted.”
