“I love how The Scout Guide puts me out there and seems to send me on adventures every day!  I also love being an arbiter of culture, style, and foodie goings-on in the area, and I enjoy meeting people and learning about their path to building their beloved local businesses. It’s been a perfect combination of my design and merchandising background coupled with being a hometown honey!”

—Hopie Avery, Owner of The Scout Guide Raleigh, Durham, & Chapel Hill
