Sharon Tucker, is native of Fort Wayne and proud mother of Teonna Hardy. For the past 20 years she has worked as a Professional Insurance Agent, specializing in commercial insurance assisting businesses of all sizes and industries protecting their assets. She currently serves as Office Manager for 1st Source Insurance – Fort Wayne Branch. Here she has the opportunity and privilege of mentoring and helping her staff meet their professional goals.
Born and raised in Allen County, Sharon attended Paul Harding High School and received her Bachlor of Science in Business Administration and Human Resources from Indiana Institute of Technology.
Sharon’s passion for education and educating people doesn’t only appear in her professional life but also in her personal life. She is the associate Minister at New Joshua Missionary Baptist Church, where she directs the Christian Education Department. In this department, ranging from Sunday school to Children’s Church, she is responsible for the education curriculum. She takes her passion for our youth seriously and works hard to bring the message of Christ to a level that they too can understand. “Many people find it hard to be able to teach the same message to both youth and adults without speaking above or below someone’s head. I believe God has given me a special gift to education and find it exhilarating to be able to share on either level,” she said when asked how she kept both of her audiences engaged.
As a former business owner, I know firsthand the struggles businesses face in today’s economy. More importantly, as a mother and homeowner I also understand the struggles to maintain the family budget in today’s tough economic times.
November 4th, 2014, Sharon was elected as Allen County Councilwomen serving the 1st District.
