About Us

5XNW.com is the brainchild of Columbus WordPress expert Angie Meeker http://angiemeekerdesigns.com/.  Angie came up with the idea in an effort to build the area’s sense of community when she lived in Fifth By Northwest with her husband Robert and daughter Nila.  Angie met Becky Hetteberg when they volunteered together, helping to promote and market the Fifth By Northwest neighborhood with the Area Commission.

When Angie and her family moved out of the area to Weinland Park, Becky took over the reins of the site, which serves as a community blog.  Becky has longstanding experience working and volunteering in 5XNW, as the former Development Director for the National Kidney Foundation, board member for the Grandview Area Chamber of Commerce, and volunteer for the 43212 Civic Association.

She resides in Upper Arlington with her husband John and two children.  When she’s not working, spending time with her family or blogging, she enjoys discovering new restaurants in Columbus, finding vintage treasures at 5th Avenue consignment stores, and checking out all the unique spots the Fifth By Northwest and Tri-Village area has to offer!
