Chief Deputy Assessor
Warren Township


Chesney is the Chief Deputy Assessor in Warren Township (Lake County). Chesney likes to tell people she was raised in an assessor’s office. Her parents met at an IPAI workshop, and her grandfather served as an Aurora Township officer (her father still serves as the township assessor there!).

At the IPAI, Chesney serves as an instructor and course writer. She puts her years of experience and firsthand knowledge of assessment best practices to work in the classroom to give students the tools they need to be successful. As a course writer, Chesney has the ability to break down complicated topics into a way that even the newest assessor can understand.
