About Alicia Beck
I’ve been lucky to call Central Illinois my home since childhood. Born and raised in Livingston Co., I attended Knox College in Galesburg earning a BA in Psychology in 1995. In 1997, I completed my Master of Social Work at the University of Kentucky.
In 2003, my husband, David, and I moved to Champaign with our son who currently attends Central High School. Upon coming to Champaign, my professional experiences already included community organizing, civil rights, disability services, downtown development and business promotion. I spent the next several years working for the University of Illinois, raising funds to educate the next generation of social workers. Today, I am a personal trainer and own a fitness studio in Downtown Champaign.
I grew up in Fairbury, where everyone waves and you can borrow a cup of sugar from your neighbor. It’s these basic community values I live by each day. I have found our community rich with opportunities to serve others. The board of directors at Courage Connection and the YWCA, the board of the Eastern Illinois Association of Fundraising Professionals, Junior League, the Labor Day Parade, the PTA at Southside Elementary and the Edison Middle School PTSA are some of the formal ways I have volunteered.
Now I have the privilege of representing the interests of the people of District 2 and the City of Champaign. It’s an honor to serve the people of this diverse district along with all those who call Champaign home. I look forward to bringing your voice to city hall.
I was elected to the City Council in 2017.
