Plan Medigap Welcomes Marine Veteran Sgt. Tim Bergeron!
Texas Small Business Growing with Key Leadership from Marine Veteran
“I married my wife six weeks before my second deployment to Iraq,” recalls Marine Sgt. Tim Bergeron. She was only 19 and I was 21. We met in our church youth group several years earlier, and after “dating” through my first deployment, we just knew we needed to get married before I left for Iraq again. Leaving my young wife that day… that was probably the hardest day of my life.”
Sgt Bergeron spent both deployments on the front lines, right in the thick of conflict and violence. “Those years were tough. I lost some very good buddies. Then, in the course of a few months, I went from conducting peace-keeping efforts and border security in Al Qaim, Iraq, to working algebra equations in a college classroom in North Texas. Adjusting to my “normal” life again took a while. It was a bit surreal.”
In 2009, Tim graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Finance. “I immediately went to work in the finance department of a large retailer. I spent four years there, learned a lot, loved the people I worked with, but didn’t feel fulfilled by the work day-to-day. My wife and I began praying about what God might have ahead of us.”
Tim joined Plan Medigap as the Director of Operations in early 2014. “I’m excited about helping lead Plan Medigap towards a bright future. The mission is well-defined. There are big things ahead, and I thank God for the opportunity to be a part of this team.”
