The Scout Guide Wellington Owners

Meet Ani & Christopher Pappas

Ani Elizabeth, a proud fourth-generation Floridian, originally born in Wellington, has found her way back after being raised in Jupiter for her childhood. Graduating with a degree in leadership and business management, she comes from a family of small business owners, fostering a profound love for the local community. Post-graduation, Ani ventured into entrepreneurship. She started a small business dedicated to helping local businesses enhance their social media presence through strategic marketing and branding.


Christopher Pappas was born and raised in Wellington, Florida. While in college at Palm Beach Atlantic University, he and his business partner created a screen printing and embroidery business, The Palm Locals, whose mission is to help local businesses elevate their branding through personalized merchandise, all while spreading the message of shopping local and loving the area of Palm Beach County. A true entrepreneur, Christopher also became a real estate agent in Wellington while pursuing his degree in business management and franchise studies. He comes from a long line of hardworking, local-business owners, including his father who has owned a business in Wellington for the last 30 years.


The couple met in middle school in West Palm Beach and are engaged to be married in October 2024. When they aren’t scouting, their weekends are spent attending and serving at their local church, while also boating, cooking, and spending time with their big families. The decision to bring The Scout Guide to Wellington reflects Ani Elizabeth and Christopher’s commitment to supporting local businesses as entrepreneurs themselves. Wellington’s vibrant community, renowned for hosting national and global equestrian events, serves as the perfect canvas for TSG’s mission to connect small businesses with their community. Ani and Christopher are thrilled about being the cheerleaders and extended voice for Wellington’s dedicated and passionate business community.

The Sunsets. Wellington’s sunsets are unparalleled. Positioned further west compared to other areas in Palm Beach County, the sunsets along the east coast paint the Wellington skies with mesmerizing pink, blue, and orange hues throughout the year.
