Pam Prine, National Social Security Advisor NSSA®
Pam collaborates with clients to define clear financial goals with realistic expectations, working hard to help protect them from emotional decisions that can negatively impact their long-term financial success.
After an eight-year banking career in the early 1980s, Pam returned to the financial industry in 2003 as a Registered Representative. In 2008, she became an Investment Adviser Representative, which means she is required to uphold a fiduciary duty of care and always act in the best interest of her clients. She has passed the FINRA Series 6, 63 and 65 exams and has insurance licenses in Arizona, California, Idaho, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Oregon and Utah. In 2020, Pam earned her National Social Security Advisor Certificate Holder designation through NSSA®. Her forte lies primarily in asset management and in guiding clients to and through retirement. Pam is also a trusted Ramsey SmartVestor, working directly with the Ramsey team to ensure she's meeting their high standards.
Pam understands the accumulation and retirement challenges that many employees and business owners face as they navigate through their retirement plans and benefits. She also finds great satisfaction from working with aging adults, particularly women in transition. Through her personal and professional experience, she understands the unique challenges and communication barriers that exist for clients relating to finance and investments. People work with people they like and trust.
