Becky Vevea

Becky Vevea covers education for WBEZ 91.5 FM in Chicago. She was born and raised in Marshfield (home of the world's largest round barn) but now calls Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood home. She has a B.A. in Journalism and Spanish from the University of Wisconsin—Madison. Becky is new to public radio, excels at planning brunch, likes making up words and enjoys not doing her laundry.


I currently live in a studio apartment (see photo) with two of my closest girlfriends--Jenni Fenton and Nikki Jolin, and this is what our humble home sounds like.
