As a Porter County native, I have a deep fondness for the way of life our county offers its residents. I played in Porter County parks, attended and sent my kids to Porter County schools, and enjoyed the diversity of activities and opportunities that Porter County offers. Those experiences instilled in me a sense of community that draws me to public service today.
As a local realtor with over 11 years of experience, I understand how rapidly escalating real estate prices can affect current and future property owners, who translate the increasing values to higher tax bills. Over my real estate career, obtaining county assessment records and tax documents, and reviewing them with clients, has helped me understand their questions and concerns about the systems and processes of determining assessed value.
