    After a 30 and 15 year career at a large local corporation, Jerry and Jean Phelps took the leap of faith and opened the doors to the Valparaiso Express Employment Professionals office in 1997. While Jerry actively recruited top talent, Jean hit the pavement knocking on the doors of local businesses offering best in class staffing services and solutions. After growing up in the business, Alyssa Chumbley finally chose to join the Franchise Team in 2016 after a Sales Management career at a .com company in Indianapolis. She looks forward to leading the new generation and building the Express offices to new heights.

    For 22 consecutive years, the NWI Express Team has built and maintained an award winning office committed to helping local families and businesses find success and hope. We are proud to be serving the hard working Northwest Indiana community and look forward to continuing to provide a pathway to local career opportunities!
