ABOUT TSG GREENVILLE EDITOR AMANDA ARSCOTT:
A native of Ontario, Canada, Amanda has always been a connector. With a broad background ranging from logistics and political campaigns to broadcasting and marketing, the common thread among her professional endeavors has always been the opportunity to connect people. As Editor of The Scout Guide Greenville, she loves that she now has the opportunity to connect people with the many amazing locally owned businesses in Greenville, South Carolina.
Amanda moved to Greenville with her husband, Greg, in 2008—a move that was only supposed to last a few months, but 11 years later, her roots have grown deep in her adopted southern hometown and they have no plans on ever leaving. Since leaving the corporate world to start her family, Amanda has served her community in many non-profit positions. She proudly serves on the Board of Directors for the Cancer Society of Greenville County and is an immediate past chairwoman of the Hope Ball. She also serves on the Board of Directors for Artisphere, the premier art festival of the South.
Amanda has three beautiful daughters, Cameron, Hadley, and Blair, and one handsome Goldendoodle named Beau.
AMANDA’S THREE FAVORITE REASONS TO VISIT GREENVILLE:
- The People: “You will not meet nicer, more welcoming people than those that live in Greenville, South Carolina. This town is full of innovators, entrepreneurs, doers, and makers. The people are the heart of this city.”
- The Swamp Rabbit Trail: “The Swamp Rabbit Trail is a 19.9-mile multi-use (walking and bicycling) greenway that traverses along the Reedy River connecting Greenville County with schools, parks, and local businesses. Rent a bike and see the beauty of our city on this unique, one-of-a-kind trail.”
- Main Street: “This was the first place that made me fall in love with Greenville. From the gorgeous tree-lined streets to the spectacular liberty bridge and Falls Park, the landscape of our downtown is breathtaking. Add to this the free trolly rides, the skating rink at Christmas, Saturday Market in the summer, and the many unique street festivals and entertainment that make our Main Street so special. I have yet to find a downtown in the United States that can compare to the beauty of Greenville’s.”
