mari and yetiI'm Mari, Founder of Stay Collective Co, a creative studio and marketing agency working with small businesses, entrepreneurs and influencers. I graduated from GVSU in 2015 with a degree in business. Originally a pure Michigander, I turned Floridian the day after graduation & tread my path in the sunshine state until Hurricane Irma hit my home in the Florida Keys moving me to Wilmington, NC.

I bake when I'm stressed
Always wear an odd number of bracelets
Pescetarian for 8+ Years


I play guitar, listen to Xmas music in June, love lemon in my water, am a certified yoga & paddleboard instructor, can never spell the word definitely without looking it up, & (sometimes) eat popcorn for dinner. You will rarely catch me with a plastic straw in my drink or single-use bag in my hand, I am an Aquarius, love to cook & yes, I have pots full of succulents around the house.

Whether I am practicing yoga or traveling the globe, I always stay true to my roots. I live for adventures, but am completely satisfied being a homebody with my Swissie, Yeti (named after the snow monster -- not the brand). I've loved fashion since before I can remember.
