Sheree Perfetti, Treasurer
I have a deep passion for helping others accomplish their goals and enjoy an improved lifestyle. I was involved in exchange student hosting and placing for many years and have a high degree of respect and admiration for uniqueness and individuality. After many years of working in sales and management, I earned my Bachelor of Science from Purdue University in Math/Secondary Education. Utilizing my problem-solving skills, I began selling real estate in 2002 while I was raising my active family. I founded Northwest Indiana Real Estate, Inc. in 2006 so I could better provide the level of service, care, integrity, education, and loyalty that I felt my clients deserved. To demonstrate how much we value our clients, my team and I implemented a client appreciation program. We always deliver what we promise. We are laser-focused to get results. I love nature, art form, color and order. In my leisure time I enjoy being with my family, camping hiking, being outdoors, swimming and traveling. I’ve been to the Grand Canyon and Niagara Falls, to Ireland and Brazil, but no matter where I go, I always love to return home, and I’d love to help you find yours!

Mindi Arnold-Buchler

I am the Director of the Lowell Parks and Recreation Department.  Some of my fondest childhood memories involve participating in Lowell Parks day camps, attending the Labor Day parade and playing in the soccer program. I believe in parks and recreation and the impact this type of service has on the community I serve.  My love of recreation and being of service to others was discovered when I volunteered as a camp counselor for the Muscular Dystrophy Associations summer camp. The very next summer I applied for a camp counselor position with Lowell Parks Department, and the rest is history! I find my enthusiasm continues to grow as I collaborate with the people of Lowell who share the desire to make a difference in this community.
