Kim Davis escaped the cold winters of Indianapolis in the late '80s, and headed south with big hair and a pile of Billy Joel and Pat Benatar albums. She made her way to Florida's Gulf Coast and took a job bartending while searching for a career position. That job gave her two job skills she continues to use. One, she became a really good listener. Two, she realized the importance of perfecting her knowledge and technical skills. The result was a very popular bartender who made a mean margarita.

She soon landed a job in the publishing field and there she found her niche. Working in advertising, she combined the marketing and graphic design skills of her college degree with a drive to be the penultimate market expert. In doing so, Kim created planned advertising approaches that brought her clients success. Now a consummate professional with more than two decades of experience, Kim is the go-to gal for anyone desiring a sound marketing approach that works.

Kim also has a passion for nonprofits and the arts, which proves to be a perfect match for Sarasota. Always volunteering, leading committees and planning events, she feels that community service is key to a fulfilling professional life. Kim is also quick to share her belief that opportunities for community service are a significant asset for the Sarasota area.
