About TSG Hilton Head Editor Cindy Owens:
Cindy Owens grew up in suburban Philadelphia and moved to Hilton Head Island immediately after graduating from college. She started her career in the resort marketing department at Sea Pines Plantation, and shortly thereafter transitioned into publishing. She has worked for both local and national titles and owned her own publication, HHIPP (Hilton Head Island Parents’ Paper), where she handled everything from writing articles and shooting photography to producing the graphic layout and design of the bi-monthly publication.

Cindy enjoys golf, relaxing at the beach with family and friends, and riding her bike to the pool for her daily workout. She has a blended family of five adult children as well as one son-in-law and one daughter-in-law. She is also the grandmother of one granddaughter and three grandsons.

Cindy lives in Bluffton with her husband, Steve. Together they enjoy an occasional round of golf, and consider themselves “foodies” and wine connoisseurs.


Cindy’s three favorite reasons to visit Hilton Head:

  1. The Beach. “The beach in Hilton Head feels almost limitless in its beauty.”
  2. Fresh Seafood. “Hilton Head is home to many world-class restaurants, and the seafood does not get fresher.”
  3. Diverse Options. “There is wonderful diversity across our three sub-markets of Hilton Head, Bluffton, and Beaufort. Hilton Head Island is known for its beautiful beaches, Bluffton for its festivals and art, and Beaufort for its history and shopping. Visit them all!”
