Local Allstate Agent: Meet Paul Shields

I’ve lived in the Mount Vernon area since 1997 and enjoy this city and everything that the surrounding area has to offer. We’re the business, financial and cultural center of Jefferson County, and we’re just a short drive from Rend Lake Recreation Complex, which offers lots of fun things to do outdoors. Plus, there’s the Cedarhurst Center for the Arts, the well-known Cedarhurst Craft Fair and the Jefferson County Historical Village.

When I’m not at the office, I spend a lot of my time with my family, including my son and daughter. You can often find me on the Jefferson County Sports Authority fields, where my daughter plays softball. She also is on the junior high cheerleading squad, which keeps us busy. Additionally, I volunteer for the Summersville Grade School Girls Peewee basketball team and sponsor the Black Socks traveling baseball team. I’m a member of the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce, and I bowl for the commercial bowling league. When I can, I try to get in a few holes of golf at the Green Hills Country Club.

I enjoy giving back to my community through my work with Allstate. I became an Allstate agent in 2016, having previously worked in the coal industry, selling safety equipment around the area. I enjoy working with customers from the Mount Vernon community as they make decisions that help protect what matters most. My agency specializes in home, auto, life and commercial. Stop by and see me! I look forward to getting to know you.
