  • “Recently I was referred to Katrina Church at Insurance People by a work colleague. Wow! Katrina translated a bewildering array of options into plain English and tailored a solution that works perfectly for me; all within my budget. Katrina speaks the language of the underwriters and helped me to remove or mitigate exclusions on my medical insurance proving that she really is a subject matter expert. It’s been fantastic handing over my insurances to Insurance People and I only wish I’d done it years ago.”
