Cynthia has her Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry and Biology. She planned on going into medicine, but decided that raising her children was more important. She has been serving people since her very first job, tutoring fellow students in junior high. Cynthia became a licensed insurance agent in 2010. Her early years were spent selling final expense insurance, where she built a large client base of wonderful people. Cynthia transitioned to health and Medicare products about 4 years ago. Her specialty is Medicare Advantage plans; she offers other products as well. She is contracted with all the major companies and some local ones, also. She is new to Bridlewood Insurance, and believes the company reflects her desire to serve clients with excellence.
Cynthia has a passion for helping people find the right product, save money and serve their best interests. She enjoys regular contact with her clients and is available to answer plan related questions throughout the year. “In Medicare, annual reviews do not mean taking more money out of the household the way life insurance products do. Life insurance is essential and loved ones benefit from the decision to buy it. However, there are no immediate financial benefits to it. Medicare Advantage plans, when properly recommended, save clients money immediately. It is a joy to help clients achieve the results they need from their health plan.”
Born and raised in California’s Inland Empire, Cynthia lives just a few miles from the house her grandparents built in the 1940s. She has 3 grown children, who are
her pride and joy. She doesn’t mind saying she sometimes lives vicariously through them! Her oldest son is a mental health attorney, her daughter is in the navy, and her youngest son, a former Peace Corps volunteer, works for the US Department of Fish and Wildlife. No parent could be more proud. Cynthia has pets, enjoys gardening, and works on projects in her home. She is a “Jane of All Trades, Mistress of None!” She plays the piano and violin and enjoys international travel. She likes to snorkel and is getting her scuba diving certification.
