As the newly appointed Assessor of Rich Township, I look forward to working with our staff and building upon the foundation established by my immediate predecessor Carol Ranieri and Shirley Green before Carol. My background includes serving as a property tax appeals analyst for the Cook County Board of Review for the past 11 years. During this time I had the privilege of assisting thousands of Cook County residential property tax payers achieve fair and equitable property tax assessments via the appeals process.
In the role of Assessor, my efforts will be focused on serving the residents of Rich Township by helping to ensure fair and equitable property assessments are granted through the appeals process, and assisting residents in obtaining any homeowner/senior/disabled or other exemptions for which they are eligible to receive.
Like my predecessor Carol Ranieri, I am a Certified Illinois Assessing Officer (CIAO). In addition, I have lived Matteson (Rich Township) for the past 30 years where I also serve as Village Trustee and have a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting.
