Who We Are

In 2014 I started in the insurance industry in the Medicare space as an independent broker. In May of 2022, I got an opportunity to open a brick and mortar location to help train agents and service customers locally.

At Acadiana Insurance Advisors we educate our clients on Individual Health Insurance and Medicare options. We help apply for Medicare and Medicaid if needed, as well as, shop for plans available in the community that fits the customers healthcare and financial needs. Then help our customers enroll in those plans and maintain contact to make sure their plan is still the right fit in the future.

Krisitie Buford

Founder of Acadiana Insurance Advisors, a native of Franklin, LA, Graduate of USL (Now University of LA Lafayette) in Speech, Language and Hearing Specialist. Before becoming a licensed insurance agent in 2014, I worked as a medical sales representative for an infusion pharmacy and home health agency for 8 years.

Currently I live in Maurice, LA with my husband and 2 kids and enjoy being a soccer and football mom. Since 2014 I have helped hundreds of families have financial and medical security by helping them select the best plans that fit their needs for Medicare, Individual Under 65 insurance, Life, Cancer/HS, Dental and more. In April of 2022 I decided to open Acadiana Insurance Advisors office, for people to have a place to come and have a secure environment to review their insurance with a knowledgeable, caring broker. I truly feel this is my calling in life to help seniors navigate the confusion of Medicare!

Michelle Crouch

My name is Michelle Beaullieu Crouch and I am a native of Lafayette, Louisiana. I decided to become an

insurance agent when I realized how confusing the Medicare world can be. I love meeting people and

helping them find their best fit for medical insurance as they reach 65 as well as plans for individuals and

families under 65.

Are you prepared for the unexpected? I can help you cover out-of-pocket costs with a Cancer Plan or

Heart Attack, Stroke or Critical Illness insurance. These supplemental plans can help ease your financial

stress if ever the unthinkable happens. Final expense plans and life insurance are an investment in the

future of my clients and I love helping them lock-in financial security.

My clients become like family to me. I truly want to help them live their best lives with the help of good
