Daniel & Amy Check met on Bald Head Island. He was working on the island for the summer while teaching high school choir and Amy was enjoying a bike ride day trip. She moved to Wilmington in 2004 to escape the Ohio weather. Daniel arrived in 2007 from Arizona after college to be near family. They love being out and about and near the water. Wilmington has become their home and they could not think of living anywhere else. They are game and puzzle people but also love being outside playing sports or walking their rescue Sunshine “Sunny”. They started the business on 11/11/11 and feel blessed to have been able to meet so many great people, be it customers, team members or fellow service providers, through business.
Kyle & Emily moved to Wilmington from Wisconsin, starting with us in August of 2019. They, like many others, were drawn to the beauty of our town and have planted roots here; literally and figuratively. Kyle is excited about his palm tree that stands proudly in the backyard of the home they purchased in 2020. They have two dogs that love to provide warmth by snuggling (laying on top of him) on the couch. They are hardcore Green Bay Packers fans. Emily works part time as a bartender while she finishes school for psychological counseling. In Summer of 2021 she began an internship at Coastal Horizons, a local non-profit providing free counseling services to our local community including Crisis Intervention, Substance Use & Mental Health, Justice Services and Health & Wellness.
