Biographical Information

What are your qualifications for the position of DuPage County Recorder of Deeds?

Do you have new operational policies that you would like to see implemented? If yes, what are they?

After a 15 year career in the residential building industry, I have a good working knowledge of the building industry and the trades. I have completed several class in the building industry as well as Real Estates classes and training. I have a Bachelor degree in Management from National-Louis University. With my extensive experience in the building industry, as well as my hands-on work experience, coupled with my educational background, I believe I would make the best fit for this position.
Overall, the recorder’s office is regarded as efficient. Until hands-on knowledge is achieved, “changes” within the department are only speculative. The question can be best answered once real-time experience is attained. Of course, opportunities for improvements always exist. My intention is to work with the personnel already in place. With their input, I would like to explore potential ways to better assist senior citizens and veterans so their experience with the Recorders office is one that exceeds their expectations. I would like to see this for all customers. Additionally, I would like to explore the creation of intergovernmental relationships to better serve the residents of DuPage Co. Make sure excellent customer service is achieved and maintained. And increase our visibility to the public through better communication and outreach.
