Born in 1958, Russell is a 4th generation from Durham, California. He has been married to Catherine Brines, a speech pathologist at Enloe Medical Center, for 29 years. Together they have two daughters, both of whom have graduated from California State University, Chico. Better known as “Rusty”, he began his insurance career in 1985 and has been selling it for the past 27 years. Throughout the years, he has gained knowledge and been prolific in selling anything from cancer insurance, funeral insurance and long term care insurance to life insurance and health insurance. Experience taught him that many agents prefer not to offer Medicare Supplemental insurance, which is why Rusty chose to specialize in it.
