About Me

Aloha! Welcome to the Iris Kuwaye State Farm Agency.  My roots run deep in Hawaii – I was born and raised in Hilo and am a graduate of Waiakea High School – Go Warriors! I also earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Oregon State University – Go Beavers!   I am passionate about giving back to my community and the people of Hawaii Island.  

Hilo has my heart and it’s an honor to work with my neighbors to help them protect what matters most.  I have been a State Farm Insurance Agent for 29 years, and my dedication to my customers has only grown with time.  We strive to help our customers with their auto, home, life, health, and business insurance needs.  We can even assist you with your pet insurance through our alliance with Trupanion.

I joined the State Farm family right after college because I was passionate about building personal connections with my community.  After five years I was fortunate enough to open my own agency in my hometown in Hilo – and I have never looked back.    

My friendly and licensed team strives to make everyone feel welcomed in every interaction, every day.  We take pride in our quality customer service, and we're always here with a cup of coffee and a snack to enjoy while we assist you to get the coverage's you need.

Helping my Hilo community is incredibly important to me.  Two charities close to my heart are The American Heart Association and The American Cancer Society.  I also love supporting local businesses and charities.  In my free time, you can usually find me walking my dog Chewy around the neighborhood with my mom, spending time with my family, golfing, and volunteering at high school swim meets.  

We can get together in the manner that you feel comfortable:  Walk-In, Call-In, Text, Email, or a Virtual Meeting.

Let's work together on a plan that fits your life for your insurance and financial service goals.
