Meet the Team: Jauntavia Prather

Self-proclaimed sweet tea and banana pudding connoisseur. Lover of politics, spontaneous travel, vinyl records, and seemingly useless trivia.

Myrtle Beach has been my home for 23 years – with the exception a yearlong deployment to Washington, DC in support of Operation Noble Eagle and my recent move to Travelers Rest. I have been a member of the Upstate-based 2-263 Air Defense Artillery battalion since 2015. In addition to handling stinger missiles on the weekends, I worked for the Office of Student Life and attended school full time at Coastal Carolina University where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, Fall 2019.

In my free time, I love to travel and explore new places with my best friends. I’ve visited Lisbon, Barcelona, and Prague in the last few years and in 2020, I hope to squeeze in some time to experience Santorini and Bali. I’m also a huge fan of kayaking, hiking, trying new foods, collecting vintage vinyl records, and of course: tracking issues in politics and public policy. I’m also very involved in my church and community.

As the Government Affairs Manager for the Greenville Chamber, I am excited to be a part of advocating for businesses and watching the region grow and challenge other regions as an economic competitor.
