Our Agents

Lisa Woodall

As an underwriter with over 30 years of insurance experience in the transportation field, I am well versed in this line of business. Specializing in public auto, truckers, and motor truck cargo coverage, there is nothing too big or too small that I can't write. An Admitted A+15 carrier is used. So before you think a policy can't be covered at a great rate, give me a call!


My hobbies are hiking, reading, gardening (I just love flowers!), watching movies that inspire me, and raising my grandson Landyn (boy does he keep me young!). My shitzu Jazz keeps me laughing with his human-like personality and stubborn small-dog complex, and I enjoy visiting my daughter and grandpuppy in Colorado for afternoon shopping trips (you just can't have enough shoes!)

With almost 25 years experience in the insurance industry, specializing in property/casualty coverage, I understand the needs of Alaskan business and commercial property owners better than most. I have an in-house authority of up to $1.5M for property and can submit to our markets for higher limits. For liability, I can offer up to $3M occ/agg limits. If you're in a rush for premiums, give me a call and I can offer you a phone quote so you see how we compare. Our markets are very competitive and anxious to write your business!


I am a lifelong Alaskan. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family. We have a cabin North of Anchorage and very much enjoy getting family and friends together for riding, bon-fires and playing cards. I love cooking and baking for my husband, kids and grandkids. We also have 2 schipperkes that are much like our children.

As a Personal Lines underwriter with over 16 years experience, I specialize in hard to place homeowner and dwelling coverage's in remote locations. I can help you place coverage for In-Home Business and Personal Inland Marine policies (does your client have a new fur coat? coin collection? fine art? I can cover that!). I also have a market for Contents in a Mini-Storage and Personal Umbrella coverage. I have been with AKPU for over 10 years and think of the ladies here as family. Email me for more information on the various coverages I can there are just too many to list!


I have lived in the great state of Alaska since 1996 with my wonderful husband and children. I enjoy spending time with my family (awaiting the arrival of a new June grandbaby!), watching movies, camping, arts and crafts, and recreational gold mining (crossing my fingers for early retirement!)
