Russell "Rusty" Williams
I graduated NC State University (go Pack!) in 1995 with a degree in Chemical Engineering. After about 2 years of research work for the EPA and the Department of Defense (chemical warfare testing – see photo), I realized talking to people was nice! I decided to use my degree with industrial sales. I enjoyed meeting new people and helping solve problems for customers.
After a number of years in industrial sales, I had the opportunity to work in insurance sales. I started my insurance carrier as a captive agent (meaning I only represented one company) in 2004. As the years passed and the demands of that job grew, I wanted more time at home with my young kids and fewer late evenings at work.
In 2012 I left that company and started my own insurance agency with the website MyMedigapConsultant.com. By switching roles to an independent broker, I was able to offer as many companies to my clients as I would like. I could offer unbiased opinions because I could offer the most competitive companies. I love sharing my knowledge with clients and helping lift the fog of confusion with Medicare plans. It’s so rewarding to have someone tell you they could not have chosen a plan without you. I have also been able to develop real relationships with my clients.
When not working, you will find me at home with my wife and three children (12, 9, and….8 months). My hobbies include golf, crossfit, and bicycling. On occasion, you will find me in the woods at my local golf course searching for my golf ball.
