ABOUT SHANN HOGUE
I have the “in the trenches” knowledge you’ll want from an insurance agent. I cared for my mother for 5 years who eventually passed from Alzheimer’s in 2016. I was not only her care manager, but also her care taker before finally self-paying for her 24-hour care. I drove her to all doctors appointments, did her grocery shopping, prescription drug management, house cleaning, bathing, cooking and eventually hiring in-home help. Mom did not have a long term care plan, so I’m intimately aware of how lack of planning can impact the whole family. Additionally, in 2013, my ex-husband fell over 31 feet to a concrete floor…and lived. Married at the time, I nursed him back to health and dealt with insurance companies, disability policies, workers compensation, network and claims issues, and all the frustration that comes with a tragic crisis in your life. The experiences I have personally gone through give me the understanding and wisdom to impart to you that go way beyond the contractual agreement of your insurance policy.
I love cooking, finding (or creating) new recipes, baking bread, and making cookies. The kitchen is my happy place! I love the outdoors too! On the weekends, you may find me gardening, hiking, camping, golfing, walking my dog “Smokie”, playing darts, shooting or hanging out around a bon fire in my backyard. I recently took up “world traveler” as a hobby! You’ll often find me working remotely in our Arizona or Nevada offices…taking advantage of all the outdoors has to offer in my spare time.
I have worked in the health insurance industry since 2004 and I truly love helping people understand their health care options. I have been an active member of the Central California Association of Health Underwriters since my career began. I have lobbied in Sacramento nearly every year, working on your behalf to ensure our representatives are aware of bills that hinder your ability to gain affordable health care. I even wrote a bill. While it didn’t go anywhere, I do understand the process. I have been on the board of CCAHU and held the position of Member-at-Large and Awards Chairman. In my tenure as Awards Chair, we won multiple awards as an association. I’m a current member of the Central California Association of Health Underwriters, National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisers, National Ethics Association, Fresno County Women’s Chamber of Commerce, and Clovis Chamber of Commerce.
Thank you for trusting me with your health care decisions. If you know of anyone in needs my help, please send them my way.
