With a wealth of experience spanning over 40 years, I've crafted my agency around something deeply personal: building lasting relationships and being there as a dependable partner through all of life's milestones.

After finishing college in Chicago, I moved to Las Vegas. This is where, after experiencing the importance of insurance firsthand, I found my calling in helping others plan ahead and protect what’s most precious to them. As an insurance agent, my priority is educating customers in Henderson, Boulder City, Laughlin, the greater Las Vegas area, and even as far as Reno and Sparks, to ensure they have coverage that aligns with their unique situations.

My team and I believe in helping you feel confident about your insurance decisions through integrity and seasoned guidance. Whether you're looking for auto, home, life, or health insurance, we take the time to truly listen and understand the full picture of your life and risk exposures. And if you’re looking for options to protect your properties and businesses, we want to be there, too. With a touch of humor along the way, we'll talk to you, just like we would to a long-time friend, about the different insurance options that can help you be ready for life's unexpected twists and turns.

Giving back is deeply woven into the fabric of our agency's values. I'm passionate about supporting local non-profits such as after-school mentorship programs, opportunities for those with intellectual disabilities, and initiatives addressing childhood hunger and medical needs. Additionally, I'm actively involved with the Henderson Chamber, the Pigpen Project, and NAIFA's local chapter where we organize food boxes and bicycle giveaways during Thanksgiving and Christmas.

My favorite mantra, "Carpe Diem," reflects my proactive and enthusiastic approach to life. When I'm not in the office, you'll find me enjoying Vegas' vibrant community. I love gardening, attending my grandkids' soccer games, dance competitions, and volleyball games, practicing yoga and Pilates, cooking, entertaining at home, and exploring new restaurants around town.

My loving family, including my husband Merv of 28 years, is my core motivator for helping other families find the protection that aligns with their needs. I love spending time with Merv, my talented kids, and my amazing grandchildren. Merv, also a native, is a State Farm agent who shares my passion for helping others. We love to travel and experience new adventures together.

I'd be honored to welcome you to the Carol Drake State Farm Insurance family where we stand ready to become your partner in protecting your most vital assets through each season of life. My office is here to help with all your insurance and financial service needs, including auto insurance, home insurance, life insurance, health insurance, property insurance, business insurance and more. Reach out today to experience the caring, outstanding service that has made us a leading agency.
