Katrina Pakala


Sr. Commercial Lines Underwriter

Territory: Minnesota | Designations: AU | Experience: Since 2006

Katrina’s insurance career began in 2006 in SECURA’s Marketing Department, where she spent nine years in various positions before transitioning to her current role as a Commercial Lines underwriter in 2014.

“I find it rewarding to be able to help agents diversify their business and grow their books,” Katrina said. “It feels great to know you're helping others with their careers.”

When Katrina isn’t in the office, you can find her enjoying all that Mother Nature has to offer. She loves being in the garden and preserving the yield by canning, fermenting, and freezing. Recently, she invested in her own beehives. With her family, she also enjoys hiking, snowboarding, and spending time on the shores of Lake Michigan.

On the occasion Katrina heads indoors, you can find her taking studio dance lessons or playing Mario Brothers on Super Nintendo — a guilty pleasure she enjoys with her husband after putting her children to bed.
