Kimberly Wetzel

• Medicare Advantage • Medicare Supplement • Medicare Prescription Drug Plans • Medi-Medi

Kim Wetzel has worked in the financial services and insurance industries for over 20 years.  Her passion for working with seniors was the catalyst for her making a career change to Medicare Insurance.  Kim’s husband, Jeff Wetzel, started Bridlewood Insurance and she left the stock brokerage business to work with him.  They have built Bridlewood into the award-winning Medicare insurance agency that it is today.  As the business grew quickly, it became necessary for Jeff to hand off some of his responsibilities, and who better than Kim to take over servicing his 1,000+ clients, and keep adding to that number with her own book of business?

Kim loves her job, as it gives her deep satisfaction to meet with seniors and get to know about them, their families and their health concerns, and then help them find the best possible Medicare plan to meet their individual needs.  She knows that the two most frequent questions almost all seniors have is, “do I have enough money to see me through retirement?” and “do I have the best health insurance to cover my needs?” With healthcare being such an important factor for her clients, there is no better feeling than to know that she helped guide them to make an informed decision that is most appropriate for their particular situation.

Kim and Jeff have been married for 35 years, and have four grown children, Derek, Madison, Alexys and Whitney.  Madison married her longtime love, Chris, and they are expecting their first child (a little boy named Zack) in May 2020, making Kim and Jeff first-time grandparents.   Her family is close-knit, and can often be found together at concerts, bowling, traveling, or boating on San Diego’s lakes and bays.

Robert Patterson

• Medicare Advantage • Medicare Supplement • Medicare Prescription Drug Plans

Robert, or Bobby to his friends, graduated from Madison High (San Diego) in 1984.  He has worked in several different trades in construction, as a sub-contractor, and has always been able to stay busy.  He has worked with laying tile, lath and plaster, electrical installation, framing and painting, and ironwork.  He was a superintendent for Lennar Homes for years and when the recession hit in 2008, he was able to switch gears and work on tile installations, flooring and countertops.  Realizing that laying tile is a “young man’s” job, he knew he needed to make a change.  His older brother, Bill, had been selling Medicare for many years, and convinced Robert that he could still help people, but in a different and meaningful way.  He understood how confusing and daunting Medicare could be for people, and really enjoys the satisfaction of helping them understand it and make a well-informed decision that is good for them.  Robert offers everything from Medicare Supplement plans, which give you the flexibility to see almost any doctor you choose and which have a monthly premium, to Medicare Advantage plans that combine the Medicare Parts A (hospital), B (doctors and clinics) and D (prescription drugs) all in one nice, neat package.  He loves to see the smile of relief on seniors faces when he has helped them make this critical decision more easily and confidently.

Robert was born in San Diego – raised in Claremont and now resides in Poway with his wife, Shannon.  They have been together for 22 years and have 3 wonderful children, Teddy, Shasta and Austin.  Their daughter has blessed them with a beautiful granddaughter, Serenity.  With his intense love of fish, Robert has 9 fish tanks and raises African cichlids, peacocks and many other beautiful fresh water fish.  He loves fishing, raising fish, bike rides and camping.  He also enjoys barbecuing and smoking different food.  He recently bought 2 kayaks, and he can’t wait to kayak and fish in the lake and ocean.
