About Us

Joanie Baker

Owner, Lakeside Living LKN
Publisher, Lakeside Living Magazines

Lakeside Living LKN Magazines are the community magazines of the lakeside areas of Cornelius & Mooresville, North Carolina. We also serve Huntersville and Denver with our brother and sister publications. We communicate, educate and celebrate all that is Lake Norman: communicating relevant, interesting, local information; educating residents on who to know, what to do, and where to go; and celebrating where we live, the people who live here, and our top local businesses. We are community-oriented, family-friendly, positive publications that work to build up, bridge, and support both our residential and business communities, bringing neighbors together.


How We Got Started

When I moved to Lake Norman in 2013 I found finding things was difficult. With so many transplants here, few seemed to know where to go, what to do, and who to call for various services. I created Lakeside Living LKN  to help both new and established residents find fun things to do, special places to go, and great service providers. We want to connect and celebrate the interesting people of Lake Norman and make our town feel like more of a HOMEtown.

How We Got Started


  • 2021 Lake Norman Small Business of the Year, Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce

  • 2021 & 2022 Small Businessperson of the Year, Alignable

  • Highly Recommended Business Status, Alignable
