The Scout Guide Delaware Beaches owner Gema Bellino

Meet Gema Bellino

Meet Gema, a native Texan who grew up in Virginia and set her sights on the South. After graduating from the University of Alabama in December 2021, her plans to attend the University of Texas Austin – Dell Medical School shifted due to the pandemic. Returning to her Virginia roots, Gema’s passion for client relationships and small businesses led her to her sister’s marketing firm, ultimately guiding her to Delaware.
Embracing Delaware’s charm, Gema quickly fell for the state and her now-fiancé, Baylan. Their journey welcomed their daughter, Adalyn Coast, in March, and they now reside in Rehoboth Beach. As a new mother, Gema appreciates the offerings of Delaware Beaches for all generations.
Having followed the Williamsburg and Chesapeake Bay Scout Guide since high school, Gema recognized the unmet need for Delaware Beaches to shine in the same aesthetic. As editor of The Scout Guide Delaware Beaches she is excited to showcase the area’s artists, entrepreneurs, and visionaries that make this destination vibrant. Through her curated guide, Gema aims to immerse you in the Delaware Beaches lifestyle, helping you live like a local.
