Pam Yagoda
Retirement Specialist

 (678) 634-2378
Pam Yagoda, a frequent guest on the Dana Barrett Show on BIZ1190AM, joined the Southern Advisors team in 2014.  She was the Operations Director for Luxottica and other corporate businesses for over 38 years.  Her background of business acumen resonates with financial strategies that improve lives and sustain the goal of never outliving your retirement assets. As an emerging senior, she also understands the peril of a retirement account that needs adjusting after the paycheck ends.  We all used a financial planner during our career years, and now it is time to add a Retirement Specialist.  Pam provides her clients with fact filled information so that they can make the best decisions for those golden years ahead.  Your money is in jeopardy because rules, regulations, and taxes can change rapidly without your knowledge.  She gives her clients the ability to relax and enjoy their retirement, knowing that they are financially secure with proper strategy without the risk.

Her desire is to educate people on all aspects of retirement planning. We have been taught all of our lives to save for retirement and to accumulate wealth, but no one has taught us how to properly use that wealth to live in retirement.  It’s not just about HAVING retirement savings, it’s about having the peace of mind that your retirement savings will last for your entire lifetime, allow you to maintain the lifestyle that you desire, leave a legacy to those you love and cover unexpected expenses like the cost of long term care.  Pam can provide a roadmap that will lead to your ideal retirement by maximizing wealth, insulating you from the threat of higher taxes and safeguarding future retirement income. Her clients are made as tax efficient as possible by implementing an array of tax-free strategies, thus guaranteeing tax free streams of income and avoiding the devastating effects of taxation on Social Security.

Pam has studied under nationally recognized experts in the area of wealth strategy, estate planning, and tax-free retirement.  She is a native of West Tennessee, where she studied at Jackson State for a Business and Business Management degree.   She works with business owners to develop executive compensation plans, non-qualified accounts for employees, key persons, and buy/sell agreements.  Her business background coupled with tax-free strategies for today’s seniors is a perfect match for building and preserving wealth.

Medicare Specialist

Amanda Fuqua is our Medicare Specialist. She grew up in Blairsville, GA and moved to the Atlanta area in 2002. Shortly after she met her husband Kevin Fuqua. They were married in 2004.  They currently reside in Canton, GA with their 4 children Aaron, Michaela, Kaylie, and Michael.

After graduating high school she went into the home health industry, where she cared for senior citizens. This experience gave her a deeper understanding of their healthcare needs. Loving what she did and caring so much for her patients, she decided to apply that unique expertise to help them with their insurance necessities.  Her insurance career began in 2006 when the government made all of the changes to the Medicare industry. She saw that it was so confusing to seniors, and she wanted to make it easier for them to understand and get the most from their coverage.

She loves helping people and always looks out for the best interest of her clients, even assisting with billing concerns.  She is up to date on all of her certifications and always finds what best fits the needs of the client.
