About Me

Hello, My name is Ellison Lor. I was born in Stockton, CA. I currently live in Newton, NC and I am a Hmong-American. I am bilingual in English and Hmong.

Hmong people are from the Southeast region of Asia. Hmong people do not have a country of their own. My specific subgroup is from the mountains of Laos. My parents were young children when the Vietnam War broke out. My father’s parents had him late in life, so they passed before he was 8 years old. My father became a soldier to survive. He fought alongside the American CIA and led many people to safety in Thailand. My mother was orphaned at a young age because her father stepped on an explosive mine while farming and her mother passed as a result of not having access to modern medicine.

My parents came to America as refugees from the Vietnam War with just the clothes on their backs. I grew up in poverty where gang violence was all around and college was unheard of. At the age of 13, my parents moved my 8 siblings and myself to North Carolina for a better future. Soon after my mother fell ill and passed. My father did not have sufficient life insurance for my mother. We only had enough to provide her with a modest funeral.

At 14 years of age, I was the oldest son so I had to step up as a man, help my father with the bills, and support my siblings. I went through Hickory High School and Lenoir Rhyne College working 2 jobs in order to provide for my family. I graduated with 2 degrees in Business Management and Finance.

I have been in insurance for over 13 years. 10 of those years have been with State Farm. I never consider myself a salesman, but as someone who is protecting families from ever experiencing the same tragedies I had to endure.

I have a wonderful supportive wife, name Judy who works in the office with me. We have 2 beautiful daughters who are 6 and 8. Temperance is in first grade and August is third grade.

I enjoy fishing and hunting. I am extremely passionate about football and volunteer to play the drums for the worship band at church.

My office is in the Statesville area. We are approaching our 5th year in January. We can service people throughout North Carolina and South Carolina. I have the mobility to come meet you. I have an amazing team. We are multilingual in English, Hmong and Spanish. We are different from other offices. We spend more than 15 minutes with a person in order to make certain that we properly put the right plan in place.

It would be an honor to provide you an insurance quote for the following: auto, home, life, business, or health.

Please feel free to contact us via phone, text or Facebook.

Our mission is to help people manage the risks of everyday life, recover from the unexpected and realize their dreams.~

Bilingual office, speaking Hmong and Spanish.

Judy Yang

Account Manager

Hi, my name is Judy. I am from Newton, NC by way of Fresno, CA. I graduated from Appalachian State University with a Bachelors of Science in Art Education. I taught grades kindergarten to high school throughout North Carolina for almost 9 years. I joined the Ellison Lor State Farm team in January of 2019. I am licensed in auto, homeowners, life and health.

I enjoy reading books, watching movies, going to museums and singing at church. I love doing hair and make up for weddings or special events. It fills my heart with joy when I get to help people see their beauty. I paint whenever I have time. Most days I’m just a busy wife and mom trying to provide my family.

I married my blind date to junior prom, Ellison Lor. We have been married for 11 years now. My husband is the hardest working person I know. He’s the love of my life. We have 2 beautiful daughters together. August is 8 years old and Temperance is 6 years old. August is the sweetest helper and Temperance is a sassy diva. We also have a Yorkie name, Buster. Buster is very protective so he isn't allowed to come to the office anymore.

Switching to the insurance field has been a great joy. Being able to assist people plan for the unexpected and holding their hand as we file claims together have been some of the most emotional and heart whelming experiences in my life. Please give me a call so I can help put a plan in place for you and your family. I am bilingual in Hmong and English. I am licensed in North & South Carolina for auto, home, life & health.

Account Manager

Hi, my name is Raphaela but everyone calls me Rafy. I was born in Statesville, NC and moved to Houston, TX for a few years. In my heart, I knew Statesville was my home so I moved back.

I am very family oriented. My mom and boyfriend are my biggest supporters and they are always rooting for me to be successful. My family and I try to spend as much time together as possible because life is full of unexpected surprises. If I am not with my family, I am spending time with my pets. I have a German Shepherd, Zeus, whom is two and half years old. I also have a domestic shorthair cat, Athena, who is slightly younger than my dog. Zeus and Athena are my spoiled babies and I would not trade them for the world.

I began my insurance career with Ellison Lor State Farm in July of 2020. I am bilingual in English and Spanish. I am a helper at heart and will always be eager to help my community. I am licensed in North & South Carolina for Auto, Home, Life & Health.
