The Scout Guide Tucson & Southern Arizona Editor MaryAnn Wittmann

Meet Maryann Wittmann

With so many new friends and faces around here we thought now is a great time to show the faces of our team that are hard at work curating our upcoming volume 3, starting with our Editor-Owner @maryann.wittmann!

With deep family ties and longtime resident of Tucson, MaryAnn has a deep connection to the culture and desert landscape. She lives on the Northeast side of Tucson with her husband, two teenage kids, and Labrador. On any given day, she can be found – driving- kids to school/sports, cheering on the UA Cats, and embracing the Live.Love.Local life in Southern Arizona.

In 2019, MaryAnn brought @thescoutguide to Tucson- with a background in real estate sales, small business marketing/training, and volunteerism. The mission has never wavered (even through the pandemic) – Scout the best of local, and bring a collective of people, products, and services together in one scouted network. We are so excited and proud of the work on volume 3 and couldn’t be more grateful for her connections, enthusiasm, and commitment to the guide and the entire TSG community.
