McKenzie is a 29-year veteran of the insurance industry, having entered the field fresh out of high school. She moved to Savannah from Charleston in 1987.

“I am very excited to be with Bernard Williams,” said McKenzie. “They are truly a wonderful place to work and wonderful people to work with. I’m really, really happy.” Her duties include working a specific set of personal lines accounts, taking inbound phone calls, making changes to auto and homeowner policies, discuss coverage, review policy renewals with customers, offer new coverage, and more. “Basically, whatever the customer needs, they can call and make an appointment or we can do it over the phone,” said McKenzie.

Debbie Hillis is the other addition to the Personal Lines department at Bernard Williams & Company. Hillis, who has worked in insurance in various capacities since 1988, is a native of Savannah. Prior to her appointment at Bernard Williams & Company, Hillis was an agent at AAA Insurance for 14 years in the Personal Lines department.
