Instructor Biography

Pamela Bonin, Health Insurance Expert, NSCA - CPT, Author

I graduated from the University of Connecticut School of Business Administration in the spring of 1993 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Risk Management & Insurance. I have worked in the Health Insurance industry since 1992 and have worked for most of the major market players including Aetna, UnitedHealthcare, BlueCross BlueShield and Cigna. Over the years it seems more and more people are confused by insurance so I thought I'd try to see if I could simplify it a little bit. You can find me on LinkedIn or my own website. I'm a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Strength and Conditioning Association and I'm also a published author under the name Pamela Lee on Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing.
