For years hardworking business owners have struggled to compete with corporations. Cherish Local was formed in 2016 to help give them a leg up. The owner, Marty Carry, left corporate America after working in the Advertising industry for 23 years. To further his passion for helping local business owners, he hired on a team of equally local-driven individuals. With their combined talents (& excessive amounts of caffeine) they have been able to launch their clients into new realms of success and continue to expand as well.
Marty Carry: Owner
Marty is the man with the plan! He's constantly working (his team has to make sure he sleeps) and is fueled by Tom Petty's music. He's a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers, buying new software often, and Diet Vernors.
Lyndsie Hosang: Client Results (& food) Specialist
Lyndsie graduated from GVSU in 2017 and likes her scones best when they're baked in England. She moved to Grand Blanc with her family back in 2001 and is still here getting her masters at UM-Flint (*hint: she really likes books).
Laura Diaz: Resident Cyclist
Laura is the newest full time employee of Cherish Local! She is bright and enthusiastic about getting involved with her community. She spends her spare time looking for the next big athletic event and having fun with her 2 kids!
Sarah Miller: Intern
Sarah became an intern at the beginning of the summer and has been a great asset to the team! She is the author of nearly all the blogs on this website. Go check out her dazzling smile and research-backed words of advice!
Carly Schlinkert: Resident Badass
Carly is dog mom to an energetic Morkie named Dinah (after the super hero, of course). She likes everything local (especially beer) but knows life is about balance which is why she's an active member of 810 CrossFit!
Megan Carry: Creative Diva
Megan graduated from K-State and makes a lot of weird noises. She provides a lot of personality to the Cherish Local team and is an expert on most things digital. She also makes sure the team has plenty of fruit every day!
