For many years, Deina’s career was with a large wholesale nursery, and her background was in Horticulture and Landscape Design. She received her degree in Horticulture from Cuyamaca College. She manage the Target Garden Shops for the wholesale nursery. In 2009, when Target decided to close their garden departments, she decided to shift gears with a new career in Medicare. With more than a decade of experience in the Medicare field, Deina can help guide her clients through the cumbersome Medicare process. Whether you are just turning 65, or retiring from an Employer plan, she can help you every step of the way!
Deina, along with her husband Kent, joined Bridlewood after a friendship with Jeff Wetzel that began many years ago while they all worked at United HealthCare, which turned into a terrific business opportunity. The choice to join Bridlewood was an easy one, as she would now be able to offer many Medicare options and carriers to her clients, friends and family. Her priority has always been to do what best for the client, and she didn’t feel she could do that when she could only offer them plans from one company. She loves to meet new people, find out what their needs are, and find the best plan that will give them peace of mind and confidence in their Medicare choices. Putting the client first has always been Deina’s motto. With this in mind, she has managed to keep growing her business through referrals. She publishes a newsletter throughout the year and shares important facts with her clients and prospects. Once you are Deina’s client, she will strive to continually serve you. She offers her clients Supplemental plans through many top carriers, Medicare Advantage plans that work within a specific medical network, and Prescription Drug plans that help cover many of their prescription costs, with an emphasis on making sure you the find the best possible plan, at the right price, and keep your current doctor, if you like.
Deina and Kent have been long time residents of East County. She attended High School in El Cajon (Granite Hills), raised her two sons in El Cajon and now has 4 grandchildren in El Cajon. In 2010 they moved to Ramona, and they love the more rural life. But, don’t let her zip code detour you, becomes Deina comes to you!
They have four adult children and eight grandkids. Papa and Mimi are their favorite names to hear. She loves the flexibility her job gives her to spend a lot of time with her grandkids. When she’s not babysitting, Deina plays in a women’s tennis league, and enjoys hiking, camping, and their dog “Prince”. This year, many lifelong dream trips were cancelled due to The Corona Virus, but she hopes they can reschedule those next year!
Kent is a born and raised San Diegan. He worked a 40 plus year career in the office products and furnishing business. Starting as a delivery driver at 17, working through the ranks to become a small business owner for most of his career. Kent has seen many changes in the San Diego county area. In 2008 when the economy became troubled, having foresight, he choose to retool and along with his wife Deina (also a Bridlewood agent), started a new venture in the Health and Medicare insurance industry.
Now as leaders in their field with over 1,100 clients, they have built their business by making sure to “always keep their clients best interest first and foremost” in everything they do. Because this is first in how they conduct their business, 95% of their new business comes from current client referrals. They make sure their client is in the best plan for their situation and are available to answer questions most anytime that a client might have. They return calls! Kent and Deina have 4 children and 8 grandchildren. They reside in San Diego Country Estates in Ramona.
He has heard it said, “If you love what you do, you never have to work a day in your life” Well, in April of 2021, I will be writing my own Medicare policy. Will be turning 65. Kent never plans on retiring as he loves meeting new people, as well as speaking to anyone of his over 1,500 clients. Many times we speak just to say hello or answer any questions that come up. Kent and Deina love to travel and had big plans, but Covid put a hold on that. So, they love working in the yard and keeping their cars in showroom condition. They also love to hike, bike, swim and play pickleball, and sometimes tennis when the joints are up for it.

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.
