Grace Souter | Director of Marketing Services

“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.”

Grace grew up in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania but has lived on Hatteras Island in the Outer Banks of North Carolina for over twenty years after graduating from Columbia University in NYC. She’s been deeply immersed in the vacation rental industry for much of that time, shifting her focus specifically to marketing around 2015.

A mom of 3 busy kiddos, Grace is a master multi-tasker and self-proclaimed sports travel planning ninja. While her own surf sessions are fewer and farther between these days, she dedicates most of her time outside of work to supporting her kids’ surfing and contest travel opportunities. Aside from a few mom logistics like sunscreen and snacks, this mostly means she enjoys the beach and the ocean with her family and friends as much as she possibly can.
