Medicare Mama®

Medicare Mama (Sylvia Gordon) is an expert on all things Medicare and Social Security. She is the 2nd generation here at The Medicare Family, where we have been helping seniors find the best Medicare plans since 1980.

About Sylvia Gordon

At a very early age, she developed a strong work ethic working on her family farm in northern Indiana where she was a 9 year member of 4-H. She ran a trap line (muskrats), sold gift cards door to door and de-tasseled corn to make money. She also waited on tables throughout school and did a stint in a call center while studying at Indiana University.

She holds a first degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and is a certified Zumba instructor and lay Yoga instructor. She loves rock climbing, scuba diving and mountain biking (even though she admits to not being particularly good at any of them).

Fun Fact #1: Sylvia has hosted 4 foreign exchange students. Sebastian (Paraguay), Ana (Uruguay), Kelsey (Netherlands), and Jack (Vietnam)

Beyond The Medicare Family, Sylvia is the president of Gordon Marketing, one of the largest distributors of insurance products to independent agents in the nation. She has sat on the advisory boards of many of the largest insurance companies in the nation including Aetna, Cigna and United Healthcare, Standard Life and Globe life. 

Fun Fact #2: Sylvia LOVES animals. She grew up on a farm and now has a “hobby farm” with chickens, mini-goats, peacocks, and of course her Labradoodles “Dinka” and “Carson”.
