Ready to Move
Growing up in the heart of middle America, Williams worked as a volunteer firefighter in his teens. "Going to sleep with my boots, pants, jacket, and helmet next to the bed for so many years is still, to this day, the best training for the life I lead," Williams recalls. He later moved to Washington, D.C. and attended Catholic University and George Washington University, where he landed a coveted internship in President Carter's White House.
