As a young options day trader and financial planner, Pamela learned to analyze the inner workings of companies and watch the impact on them from whispers to global news. So when she became a business manager for a major health insurance company, she immediately started to peel back the layers to see the money trails and direction of healthcare in America, and globally. “Seeing the insides of any machine brings great clarity and focus to provide solutions.” Pamela brings this clarity to healthcare in an effort to provide cutting edge tools for consumers that empower individuals.View the profile
