As a women-owned and run business ourselves, this feature is very near and dear to our hearts. We believe it is important to highlight female leaders in our community in order to inspire other women with entrepreneurial ambitions.

We promote supporting all local, reputable businesses, but this is a neat opportunity to showcase a minority group in the business community.

All women are powerful—stay-at-home moms and business owners alike. As a business publication, we feel it’s our duty to run these types of features, and we look forward to continuing to expand our editorial calendar in this direction.

Some may describe insurance as a “necessary evil”. It’s that “thing” we are required to carry, whether it’s the State forcing us to insure our vehicles or the mortgage company requiring us to insure our homes. State Farm ( Agent Tanya Patzner understands this.

“At the end of the day, what my team sells is a claim—a promise to be there when something happens,” said Tanya.

Tanya grew up in small-town Iowa. She went to work for State Farm right out of college and spent 15 years in various positions within claims before deciding to become an agent in 2009. Her entire family works for State Farm—Tanya’s dad is still the State Farm Agent in her hometown, and her littlest sister works in his office. Her other sister is a claim representative here in Omaha.

“If you cut us, we bleed State Farm red!” said Tanya.

The nearly 30 years Tanya has spent with State Farm, not to mention growing up as an AK (agent’s kid), gives her a unique perspective. She knows the company, knows the products, and knows the people. Tanya is dedicated to ensuring there are no bad surprises.

“It’s important our customers understand what they have, and what they don’t,” said Tanya. “If a customer says, ‘Why didn’t I know—why didn’t you tell me?’, we have failed.”

Tanya’s entire team shares her passion for taking care of their customers. They exist to serve by making a difference in the lives of their customers every day. Having customers say, “My life is better for having known you.” is their mission. Contact Tanya at (402) 333-1866 / or visit to learn more.
