After having grown up in Central Washington (Yakima), and then graduating from Pacific Lutheran University (PLU) in Tacoma, my wife Michelle and I have chosen to raise our family in the city of Seattle since moving here in 2001. After having worked in the wireless industry for a number of years, I opened my State Farm agency in 2008. It has been a wonderful ride, and I still enjoy it immensely!

My family and I are active in the Queen Anne and greater Seattle community, volunteering and raising money for several non-profit organizations, schools, and athletics programs. Being a State Farm agent allows me to get to know a diverse array of people, support their needs, and be there for them in times of crises. I get to work with amazing team members, and together, we get to help instill confidence and foster a sense of community when working with our customers -- both current and prospective!

I would love to discuss your auto insurance, renters' insurance, homeowners' insurance, health insurance, business insurance and/or life insurance needs. We are here...let's talk!

Art joined Chuck McFarland's State Farm team in June 2020, after graduating from Portland State University.

He loves playing dominoes with friends, as well as watching movies and playing video games. Being a self-proclaimed "huge collector," he loves collecting manga and anime, as well as board games he enjoys playing. One day, he would love to travel to Germany, Japan, Thailand, and Poland.

Art's goal in life is to make sure he can continue to contribute to a life where he and his partner are happy and able to do what they love, along with their two kitties. Thankfully, with this professional role, he says, "I am able to do that confidently and I couldn’t ask for anything more!"

Synan Edwards

Office Manager

Synan (pronounced sin-ON) serves as Office Manager on our team. She has worked in the insurance industry for over 12 years, eight of which have been with State Farm, and she has been a valuable part of Chuck McFarland's State Farm team since November 2020.

She is a proud mother to two beautiful daughters. She is also grateful for her Cambodian heritage and speaks Khmer in addition to English. She loves brunches with her family and friends and feels that potlucks with great company, music, and games are her perfect definition of quality time.

Synan loves exploring nature, especially when the weather is hot and sunny. She plans on traveling all over the world with her girls, with Africa and Italy topping her bucket list. She truly likes doing things she isn't yet good at, because she loves to learn new things.

What Synan loves most about working at Chuck McFarland's State Farm is "being able to connect and build relationships with our customers while helping them secure their future."

Synan aspires to one day become an agency owner for State Farm.

Maria Amezcua State Farm Agent Team Member

Maria Amezcua

Account Manager

Maria started working as a State Farm team member in March 2023, and joined Chuck McFarland's team in October 2023.

In her free time, you can find Maria on a trail in Washington’s beautiful landscapes, riding a mini dirt bike on a mountain trail, or paddle-boarding on a lake. Having grown up in a tightly-knit family, she also loves cooking together in the kitchen and having big get-togethers during the holidays.

Maria also loves trying new foods from local restaurants, and she one day hopes to visit Greece and travel around Europe, where she can enjoy trying all of the local cuisine.

In her professional role, Maria likes explaining the details of insurance to people, so they get a full understanding of all the necessary coverages and can help them learn something that hasn’t been explained before.

Having the ability to speak both English and Spanish is something that Maria holds near and dear to her heart. “Being able to explain coverages, different policies, and answering questions in Spanish is something I can say I am extremely proud of. I will always enjoy helping my Hispanic and Latino community with my line of work.”

What Maria loves most about working at Chuck McFarland's State Farm is "our team and office feel like a family, and we rely on each other every day to make sure our customers get excellent service, while still helping each other learn.”

Michelle McFarland State Farm Agent Team Member

Michelle McFarland

Marketing Director

Though Michelle officially joined the team in March 2023, she has been a long-time supporter of Chuck McFarland State Farm. In fact, she's married to Chuck, and has been there since the beginning, back when the agency was launched in April 2008. She remembers fondly the nights that she and Chuck would bring their young family into the office to have "picnic dinners" on the floor while Chuck served customers' needs after-hours and Michelle cleaned the office. Fun times!

Prior to her officially starting with the team, Michelle served for 13 years in higher education. She now serves as Marketing Director, where she manages social media, advertising, events, customer appreciation, and many "other duties as assigned" involved with running a small business. She loves working on such a diverse and special team of professionals, and really sees the impact of the work that the team does even just within her own social network. Plus, she enjoys working alongside her partner and favorite person, Chuck!

Michelle loves 80s music, travel, watching Survivor, and hanging out with friends, family, and dog Bailey. She and Chuck are both very proud of their three adult kids, who are wonderful humans!

Stephen York State Farm Agent Team Member

Stephen York

Account Associate

Stephen joined Chuck McFarland's State Farm team in November 2023, after having served in higher education roles, specifically around recruitment and retention, for the previous nine years.

Raising a young family is Stephen’s (and his wife’s) main focus, and one of his favorite things to do with his kids is stroller-jog to a park on a sunny day, with a quick stop at the donut shop. Stephen loves being active - running, walking, biking, lifting weights, sports, etc. When not out with friends or family, he can be found reading a book, playing video games, or trying to learn new skills or facts.

While he has a young family, Stephen hopes to explore more of the United States. He would love to visit Hawaii, Alaska, and the Northeast, amongst other places.

In his professional role, Stephen enjoys “being able to walk alongside customers in their various seasons of life and find opportunities to support them. Insurance can be a complicated subject, and I enjoy demystifying it for customers. I’ve always gravitated towards roles that stress service to others and education, and insurance blends those two in some unique ways! With Chuck McFarland’s State Farm, I was drawn to the emphasis on people first.”

What Stephen loves most about working at Chuck McFarland's State Farm is "I cherish the collective wisdom across the team. As someone who values learning, I love that I can show up to work each day to learn and put into practice how to support my team members and customers well. Plus, everyone shares the desire to serve their communities, and care is at the center of the work we do!”
