Our Team

Kathy Hirko
Licensed Insurance Agent

After 17 years of owning a Manufacturer’s Representative company in the office products industry, I wanted to move into an industry that was not only growing, but where I could help individuals answer questions and solve problems. Medicare can be overwhelming and confusing. I work with people and educate them to their options when joining Medicare and/or leaving a company plan.

Representing a multitude of companies allows me to find the plan that best suits their needs, being locally owned allows me to meet with them face to face if they choose to do that. If you are somewhat overwhelmed, please allow me to educate you to your options.

After staying home to raise my children, several years ago I decided to embark on a career in the insurance industry focusing on Medicare Plans. I love working with "Baby Boomers" and those folks who are retiring and are new to the Medicare system. It is very rewarding to me to help guide them through the Medicare maze and find the health care plan that is right for each individual.

Although I am available to anyone in northeast Ohio, my primary service areas are Summit, Medina, Stark and Wayne counties.

Brenda Gregory
Licensed Insurance Agent

Being a licensed insurance agent in Ohio since 2000 I have enjoyed helping seniors with life and health insurance products. My previous background in the physical therapy field has allowed me to understand the many needs that seniors and baby boomers face when planning for their futures. The various insurance products available to protect ones health and assets can be overwhelming. I enjoy taking each persons needs and concerns into account when educating them on the various options they have for Long Term Care Insurance, Medicare Supplements, Part D or Medicare Advantage Plans. Making the complex understandable is my passion.

I travel throughout the Northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania area but my counties where I concentrate most on are Trumbull, Mahoning and Columbiana.
