It was Emily’s keen eye and creative ability that was a major building block for Identify Yourself. Way back in 1987, Emily (a.k.a. “Mom”), began a custom flag business in the living room of her home, hand-sewing flags specifically for businesses with a sewing machine given to her from her mother. This is where the custom product business originated! She grew this business into what is today Islander Flags of Kitty Hawk, Inc. and Identify Yourself, LLC: two successful woman-owned companies. Giving into her design background, Emily became skilled in Corel Draw & Adobe Illustrator and brings a ton of design experience to the team.
