Let's tell your story together.

 

Authentic Asheville is a team of two: Caroline Whatley and Erin McGrady. We are website designers, freelance photographers, social media influencers and writers for the travel blog Local Adventurer.  


Erin is a Squarespace web design specialist who has created several websites, two of which have been featured by Squarespace. She was also part of 2016's #FindYourPark expedition with the National Park Foundation and has done creative work for brands that include REI, Subaru, Aramark, Forsake, Black Rapid and Columbia Sportswear. She is also part of the Editorial Team of FitWild

"Erin is a consummate professional with infectious passion, drive, and curiosity. I had the pleasure of getting know and work with Erin during the 2016 Find Your Park Expedition. Her artistic talent is self-evident, but I was especially impressed by her ability and interest in fostering inclusive community with every person she met. Erin is the ideal collaborator and I hope we have the opportunity to work together again soon." 

- Jennifer Lutman, Columbia Sportswear

Caroline is a photographer, writer and brand identity specialist. She has owned several successful local businesses, renovated a couple antique houses, created beautiful spaces and developed profitable rental properties. As a founder of Hole Doughnuts west Asheville, her brand vision and unique product earned her the attention of none other than Bon Appetit Magazine who in 2016 named her molasses-bourbon doughnut Best Dessert of the Year. In addition, Hole has also been mentioned in National Geographic, People Magazine, Zagat and Wonderfilled.

"Caroline and Erin are always a pleasure to work with. As writers, photographers, and social media content creators, they have been great ambassadors for our blog. We know they represent the Local Adventurer brand well and I always appreciate how quick they are to respond and complete assignments."

- Jacob, Co-Founder of LocalAdventurer.com
