Pam Secrest


Pam worked at Allstate as a trainer for agents for 20 years before becoming an independent insurance agent at The Pentagon Group. A native of Indian Trail, she moved back to that area a decade ago after living and working in Charlotte for many years. The move was inspired by the desire to purchase the family’s homestead that was built by her father and grandfather. Today she holds licenses in Property, Casualty, Health and Life Insurance, in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. She also holds a Medicare Supplement license, Series 6 and Series 63 Securities licenses, and is a Builders & Tradesman Certified Agent.
