Marin Davis, Founder of Local Collaborative

Hey there! I’m Marin, Founder of Local Collaborative.

Since 2014 I’ve worked professionally in the marketing industry. I’ve worked with teams of creative professionals on brands like Cuties, Mighties, Panda Express and celebrities like Alex Borstein. After marrying an Army man, we moved and I began working as an insurance salesperson (AWFUL) and a Marketing Manager for an author and speaker. When that job ended I was left with a decision that was simple to make: Start my own marketing agency or job hunt every time the military moves us.

In 2018 I founded Local Collaborative with one thing in mind: Pair simple, creative approaches with strong, clear communication strategies to provide small businesses with the marketing they need to succeed. Since being a military spouse requires constant moving and adaptation, I had a dream to collaborate with talented professionals I’ve worked with during my years in the advertising and marketing industry.

Our team collaborates with you to create a memorable brand people will fall in love with. We offer executive level results with a hometown experience because we don’t believe things need to be extravagant to make an impact. We love seeing the relief small business owners have after we take the stress and overwhelm of social media marketing off their overflowing plate. It’s time to get you back to working on what makes you happy! 


Who are you working with? Here’s a quick speed date:

  • I earned my degree in Bachelor of Science in Journalism + Mass Communication with an Emphasis in Public Relations and Minor in Leadership Studies from Kansas State University.
  • I like my drinks cold and my sandwiches hot.
  • I’m a huge quotes junkie. One of my favorites? “Be somebody who treats everybody like a somebody.” 
  • Craft Beer > Wine.

Right now I’m living with my husband, our first child (a beautiful baby boy!) and two rescue mutts in Tennessee. I love hiking to summit mountains and exploring new cities in areas we move to (or have dreamt of visiting). My favorite cities are full of historic importance or cozy, quaint atmospheres. I love to write which is why you’ll find both personal and professional blogs here. I’m always up for any adventure outdoors, trying out new fitness experiences and a nice, cold beer.

Need something done but you’rejust not sure WHAT?
