Without a doubt, one of the best parts of my career is having the opportunity to meet various influential leaders throughout the region who are driving the businesses and nonprofit organizations that make NW Indiana a better place to live, work and play. From small mom and pop shops to huge global corporations, the Life Sites offer a variety of options to help brands build awareness, drive leads, recruit top talent, and promote events, all while educating our audience of 65,000+ readers on their people, products and services!

Here are six of our newest Partners of Life and some of the GREAT news that I’m excited to share on their behalf:

Advanced Dental Concepts originally began serving the Crown Point community in 2004. Led by Dr. Danny Hayes, the team recently opened a second location in Portage and aims to change your perception of a trip to the dentist. Customers can expect to walk into a comfortable office that makes them feel right at home. While they wait for their appointment to start, patients can even wrap themselves up in warm blankets and watch TV. Check out their website to learn more or schedule your next appointment today!

Every year Shedd Aquarium welcomes 2 million+ guests for unforgettable encounters with 32,000 animals from the world's various aquatic environments. But Shedd is more than just a destination! Their animal care experts rescue and rehabilitate wildlife in need, across the country and around the world. With new exhibits like Under Water Beauty and loads of other experiences, Shedd makes for the perfect family trip to the city!

Tudor Floors & More Carpet One values the customer’s needs above all. The staff is supplied with real-world experience that’s not often found in larger chain stores that dot the nation. Every bit of support from the community over the last 50 years has meant the world to Tudor and the company is committed to returning that support by giving back to area non-profits like Valpo Nazarene Church, Opportunity Enterprises, and The Caring Place just to name a few!
