Debra Matlock joined Tolman & Wiker Insurance Services, LLC in 2003. Her ability to effectively manage multiple roles and her passion for helping clients was quickly recognized. In 2006, Debi moved from Operations into Sales, a role where she can make a direct impact in improving the lives of her clients and their employees. “Most days, I really love my job and feel very fortunate to be able to say that. I find it very satisfying to be able to assist individuals when there are claims issues; it is gratifying to know that I can be of assistance when they are going through a difficult time in their life because of health concerns.” Debi is fascinated by the immense variety of businesses we serve and enjoys learning about the people behind them. She especially enjoys learning how clients began their business, and helping them find a benefits program that best suits their needs to support their continued success. “I try to always remember how fortunate I am to have the trust of my clients and the responsibility that comes with that trust, and to be a part of this organization.”
Debi brings to her clients over 20 years of employee benefits experience, including 14 years with Anthem Blue Cross in business analysis and IT management. She is committed to providing her clients with the most current information available regarding legislation and other changes that may affect their business. In addition, she is a member of the Ventura County Chapter of the National Human Resources Association.
Ms. Matlock received an AA degree from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, and was a stay-at-home mom for 12 years. When she returned to the workforce, Ms. Matlock began her career as an account manager for Blue Cross, moving on to business analysis and then into IT management, where her team developed billing and rating programs and financial reporting systems for the individual and small business unit of Blue Cross. She works hard to provide her clients with the best tools and technology available. In her spare time, her interests include garage sale finds, Zumba classes, and giving back to the community by volunteering her time with a local Jack Russell Rescue organization. She enjoys reading, gardening, and walking on the beach with her dogs. She has two adult children and is looking forward to the arrival of her first grandchild! Her personal philosophy on life: Debi believes that it is important to laugh and have some fun every day.
