Linda Jahnke began working in the long term care industry after graduating from the University of Iowa. Her family experienced firsthand the impact of nursing care expenses when her grandfather and aunt needed care for more than 15 years. She and her husband built a successful long term care insurance agency after relocating to San Diego in 1989.
Linda and Kevin have always focused on solving a problem for families rather than just selling insurance. Education and service is the cornerstone of their practice. Since Linda has only specialized in long term care planning, she and her husband have recently expanded their practice to incorporate advocacy and care management resourcing for their clients. This is a specialized service that all of her clients will benefit from.

Connecting those needing care with vetted, high quality, geriatric care managers, and in home supportive services is a welcome relief for families caring for a loved ones.
Linda was a volunteer Ombudsman with the Area Agency on Aging for seven years and currently serves as a board member for the Glenner Memory Centers of San Diego.
