Rodger is a native of the Tidewater Virginia area. Rodger’s work ethic, which is apparent in all he does in the insurance and financial area today, may be linked to his childhood. He grew up on a 1400-acre grain and livestock farm where he learned to work hard, understand the value of a dollar and appreciate the gifts of the outdoors. Rodger will amusingly tell you that after receiving many A’s and B’s in high school, he found himself in the path of many F’s….
