Lisa Hengel has owned Willow Wood Insurance since the agency was founded in 2013. In 2014 Lisa took over her uncle Kevin’s agency upon his retirement, and she is very proud to still have so many of the Hawkins Insurance clients as part of the Willow Wood Insurance Agency. Prior to Agency Ownership, Lisa attended St. Mary’s University in Winona, Minnesota where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in English Education.
In December 2021, Lisa earned a spot in the Goldman Sachs 10k Small Business program, and is proud to be in the company of 10k+ other small business owners who have graduated from this intensive program. Lisa is also a proud supporter of Insure Equality, a non-profit organization that focuses on bringing to the forefront those voices that have not been heard or minimized in the insurance industry.
Lisa and her husband Dale have 4 children: One who recently graduated from Winona State University, two who attend the University of Minnesota, and their youngest attends Edina High School. Lisa loves going to watch her son perform his original music, and is excited that he was able to sell out his headline gig at First Ave & 7th Street Entry!
Lisa has supported the Edina community by being the Treasurer of the Edina High School Booster Club among other endeavors. Lisa is passionate about bringing a female presence to a male-dominated industry and educating young adults on the importance of insurance.
