☀ Summer is the perfect season to bask in the great outdoors, enjoying activities like hiking at Hocking Hills, swimming, and barbecues. However, it's essential to stay safe by applying sunscreen, staying hydrated, and practicing water and fire safety to ensure a fun and secure summer experience!

👋 Welcome to Steve Rider State Farm! As a business owner and someone who was born and raised in Ohio, I understand how important it is to make sure that you, your family, and/or your business are appropriately insured so that you can continue on your path to success, even if tragedy comes calling. We are here to help with your insurance needs!

🏫 Before launching a career as a State Farm agent in 2018, I was born and raised in northwest Ohio in the small town of Spencerville, Ohio. After I graduated high school in the Spring of 2006, I began my journey to further my knowledge of the business industry, and in the Spring of 2012, I graduated The Ohio State University with a degree in Business Education. I’ve called Columbus, Ohio my home ever since!

👨‍👩‍👦‍👦 Soon after I graduated from The Ohio State University, I got engaged, and eventually, I married my wife, co-worker, and now a State Farm Insurance Agent herself, Katie Rider, in 2013. Together, we now have two beautiful children, Charley and Liam, and two dogs, Carter and Chloe.

🏈 Anybody who knows me, knows that I support all Ohio State athletics. You probably won’t find me in the office on a Saturday during the football season, but you might find me at Ohio Stadium! I am passionate about business development, officiating, poker, and most importantly, my family.

🏢 Our office is in the Henderson Park Offices off West Henderson Rd in Columbus right next to a couple of FedEx and UPS drop-off bins. The dead giveaway to you know you’ve arrived at our office is the car wrapped in State Farm branded vinyl. We have ample amount of parking, so stop by and say hello any time during business hours or schedule an appointment if after hours or the weekend is more appropriate for you.

🤹‍♂️ I love being involved with our community. I am currently a member of the Columbus Chamber of Commerce. We proudly support the Parker Lee Foundation as a Sponsor, which promotes charitable groups and local causes to help improve the quality of life for disabled and disadvantaged children in the Central Ohio area. We have also been involved in various Habitat for Humanity events, and I was involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters.

🏆 My team and I have over 40 years of experience in the insurance industry through relationship building, networking, and customer service have been awarded State Farm Ambassador Club Level 3, Honor Club, Senior Vice President’s Club, Chairman’s and President's Club.

Staff Assistant

I'm Whitney and I joined the Rider Team back in November 2023. Originally from Grandview, I'm a proud graduate of the Ohio State University. When I'm not diving into helping customers with insurance, you can usually find me soaking up quality time with my family and friends. I'm a huge fan of the outdoors, whether it's hiking, biking, or just a nice stroll. And when the weather's not cooperating, you'll likely catch me cozied up indoors, watching movies. Looking forward to connecting and helping you find coverage for you and your loved ones!

But beyond my love for neon and synth beats, what truly drives me is lending a helping hand wherever I can. Whether it's guiding a customer through their insurance needs or simply offering support to those around me, making a positive impact is what it's all about. Let's groove through life together, one paw print and power ballad at a time!
