Alicia O'Connor, Editor of Lakeshore Magazine
I’ve always enjoyed my work in Marketing and Brand Strategy but recently decided to do something purely for fun, because I think that’s the best reason to do anything. In that spirit, I created Lakeshore Magazine as a place to share my love for the Great Lakes Region, its people, and classic style.

I live with my husband, two great kids and the world’s happiest mutt in the beautiful lakeside town of Evanston, Illinois.  It’s here that I achieved a long-time dream of living in a John Hughes movie, although these days I’m more like  Katie Bueller than Samantha Baker.
