Women Business Leaders: Vivian Mora of State Farm
State Farm agency owner Vivian Mora and her team are passionate about the positive impact they can make in people’s lives and our communities by helping them protect what they work so hard for. They stay focused on helping customers plan for the future of their families and businesses. “My team really cares and they know why we do what we do every day,” Vivian says.
Vivian Mora has worked in a number of different fields from Latino media to Birmingham city government, where she served as bilingual public information officer in 2002.
There have been other firsts in her career. Vivian was the first Latina State Farm Agent in Alabama. “My team and I had the privilege of starting the first full service multilingual State Farm office in Hoover, in 2009, providing auto, renters, homeowner, business, life, health and financial services. The agency has become a pioneer in the Hispanic and New American market thanks to all our loyal customers in Central Alabama.”
Recognizing the need to serve this diverse market and her strong team mentorship culture, State Farm offered Vivian in 2020, a second location in Irondale, as the first agent to have two offices in the state.
“Our dedicated team is our strength and we are very intentional on providing opportunities for personal and professional growth.
“Many of the team members have kids or aging parents, as I do. Keeping up the work and life balance is not an easy task. Being able to offer flexible hybrid schedules, a mix of home and office days, really motivated the staff and created a feeling of commitment, trust and gratefulness.”
Most of her team members are females, starting a new career from scratch. “Introducing my team to the financial services field, which addresses such a need in our community, has been one of the most powerful experiences of my profession. It has encouraged us to strengthen our relationships with local colleges and universities in search of more ‘servant hearted candidates’ to join our ever growing team.”
