Meet Debbie Hoffman
Founder, CEO and Insurance Agent
It’s difficult to describe what Debbie Hoffman does for her clients. Passionate about putting everyone she meets in a better health and wealth position, it is a natural fit that Debbie now assists those looking for insurance solutions during the ‘experienced’ part of their lives. As an independent insurance agent, she guides clients through the Medicare, ObamaCare mazes, and because of her financial planning background, Social Security options. Because of past personal family experience, she has a passion for designing strategies for long term care funding alternatives to preserve estates. She doesn’t look at working in the insurance field as a job, it’s truly her mission.
Debbie is originally from the New Orleans area and currently resides in the SouthBay. Her greatest source of pride is her daughter and two granddaughters and many times she can be found chasing after them at the playground.
She loves spending time with friends, concerts in the park, traveling the world and enjoys giving back to the community in numerous capacities including raising funds for various charities such as the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House and the Redondo Beach Center for Spiritual Living as well as taking leadership roles in the community.
Her clients call her by many names…Medicare Guru, Financial Angel, Life Coach and my favorite, HIDAKI (Hunt It Down And Kill It) but ALL call her ‘friend’.
