Get to know a local mama: MEET Becky!

My name is Becky Garvey. I was born in Waukegan, IL and have lived in the Peoria area since I was 4 years old. We currently live in Bartonville. I graduated from Richwoods in 2003. I have a bachelor's in marketing from Southern Illinois University. I met my husband at SIU. We were married in Springfield, his hometown, in 2009. We have 3 kids. Owen is a very smart 6 year old at Concordia. Matthew is an energetic 4 year old. Elena is a rapidly evolving 18 month old. We also have a 4 year old very furry baby, a collie named Jack.


We love being outside! Any playground is great. Living in Bartonville we visit Alpha Park often. We also love walking the Rock Island Trail. For quiet time we visit the library weekly. We are also members of Peoria Zoo and love to visit The Playhouse.

We are looking forward to getting back outside! We love making a fire in the backyard and having friends over for s'mores. Our backyard is another favorite with a swing set and the perfect hill to run down.


My favorite things at Bushbaby for the warmer months are Keen sandals, Tea Collection dresses, and lightweight North Face jackets. And every time I'm in the store I check out The Conservation Project for deals for all the kids.

Bushbaby is one of my favorite stores in town for unique baby items and quality kids outerwear and shoes. I love to come and shop the great selection whenever I have the chance!
