Becca Martin is a senior communications manager and the creator of LiveHereOakPark.com, an online community for people living in and around Oak Park, Illinois. Live Here Oak Park brings residents together to discuss everything from new restaurant openings to recent village board decisions. Unlike on a traditional blog, her members play a critical role as contributors to the site, sharing their own blog posts, events, videos and photos. Her online community also extends to Twitter where she can be followed at @OakParkerr for the latest Oak Park news.
In addition to managing Live Here Oak Park, Becca is a member of the Ning Network Creator Council and a former guest columnist for the Wednesday Journal. She holds a bachelor’s degree in English from Spelman College and a master’s degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.
