ABOUT TSG OCALA EDITOR GRACE CLAYTON:
Originally from Mississippi, Grace attended college at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, where she earned her degree in public relations, and now lives in Ocala full-time. She has frequented Ocala since she was 13 to ride and compete her horses on the winter circuit, and now works full-time at Exceptional Equestrian, a luxury riding apparel and lifestyle store at the World Equestrian Center.

Having grown up in a traditional southern town as the daughter of small business owners, Grace has an innate passion for local small businesses and community involvement. She believes that local stores and establishments are truly the soul of the community. Grace picked up her first Scout Guide in 2013, and it has been her travel go-to ever since. Her enthusiasm for small businesses and travel make the TSG mission one she can vehemently stand behind.

A charismatic individual who loves interacting with and meeting new people, as well as all things fashion, travel, and food, Grace spends her free time riding, hanging out with friends and family, and obsessing over her outfits. When she can, she travels home to Mississippi or to her family’s ranch in Wyoming.
