TSG Chattanooga Editor Amy Walters

Meet Amy Walters

Amy’s passion for editorial design started early in her career. Her first job out of college was designing health and wellness publications, followed by corporate marketing and design positions in which she explored many creative avenues for nearly a decade before launching her own marketing and creative business. She already works closely with local clients to promote their products, services, and passions, so when Amy and her husband, Mark, were approached with the opportunity to purchase The Scout Guide Chattanooga, it was the perfect fit for her professional background and her personal love for local commerce.

Born and raised in Northern California, Amy’s love for arts, culture, fashion, and food started at a young age. Family ties brought her to Chattanooga in 2007, and since then she has loved watching Chattanooga grow into the beautiful, vibrant, diverse community that it is today.

Amy’s Favorite Reasons to Visit

Reason 1

The riverfront. Downtown Chattanooga is built along the banks of the Tennessee River, and its cityscapes do not disappoint. I still have a hard time not taking pictures when walking the Walnut Street Bridge at sunset!

Reason 2

The food. Chattanooga has some of the best eateries, cafes, bars, and fine dining, spanning everything from vegan-friendly options to state-of-the-art culinary experiences. Even my friends from NYC say Chattanooga rivals the food offerings that they have in Manhattan.

Reason 3

The adventures. The city is nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, so access to rock climbing, hiking, hang-gliding, paddle boarding, river rafting, and biking are all easily accessible, yet less than two hours from metropolitan cities, such as Atlanta and Nashville.
