Rustin Goodgion CIC

Partner / Risk Advisor

I graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Risk Management and Insurance in the spring of 2007. After graduation, I quickly realized the independent insurance agent channel suited me best. I have been at Patterson and Associates Insurance Agency since graduation. As an independent agent, I offer my clients a variety of products and companies to fit their unique insurance needs. My goal is to provide my clients with the best experience when purchasing their insurance.

I also graduated from the Independent Insurance Agents of Texas (IIAT) Commercial Lines Producer School in the fall of 2007 which gives me a competitive advantage when it comes to truly knowing the commercial insurance marketplace. I have my General Lines license to sell both Property/Casualty and Life/Health. I received my CIC (Certified Insurance Counselor) designation in July 2011. In January 2014, I became a partner and shareholder in the agency.

I am actively involved with the Independent Insurance Agents of Dallas (IIAD) as well as a member of the Young Agents where I have served on multiple committees. I have been married to my beautiful wife Audrey since 2009, we have one baby girl named Olivia and two miniature schnauzers named Hudson and Harper. In my free time I enjoy traveling with my family and going to dinners with my wife. I also try and sneak in a round of golf from time to time.


What are your hobbies &/or guilty pleasures?  I enjoy spending time at Possum Kingdom Lake, playing golf, and cooking for my family.

What brings you joy outside of work? Traveling with my family and going to nice dinners with my wife.

What do others say your strengths are? Planning, organizing, and ability to stay focused on the task at hand.

Fun facts about you or your family:
Blowing leaves out of my garage and power washing give me great satisfaction (neat freak!).
