Lindsay Amerault (Co-Founder & Creative Director of The Admiral’s Daughters) had no idea that upon initiation as a Pi Beta Phi sister, her sorority life would help influence her future career. Opening the doors to the Florida Delta house at the University of Florida instilled philanthropy into her veins.
Nearly 10 years after graduating with a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Florida (and an MA from Savannah College of Art and Design) and working with names like ESPN, The NY Knicks, Chicago Bulls, and Big12 Network, Lindsay ditched her successful career in Sports Design & Technology. The vision to create a mission-driven company, give back to the military and coastal communities that raised her, and empower the female members of those communities had been in the back of her mind for a long time, and that “little voice” was finally too loud to ignore.
With her biggest cheerleader by her side, Lindsay and the “DADmiral” (as she lovingly refers to her father, a retired Navy Vice Admiral), established The Admiral’s Daughters: A mission-driven, women’s apparel company, based out of their family home in Jacksonville Beach, Florida. The Admiral’s Daughters boasts apparel with extreme comfort and unique designs (all created by Lindsay, of course) with partial profits given back to ocean-conservation and military charities; the very same communities that Lindsay was raised in as a Navy Brat.
As the brand grows, Lindsay has spent extensive time on the road. The best part of the long journeys has been reconnecting with members of her pledge class and other sisters. “They have been beyond supportive, opening the doors to their homes and even offering their time as we work side by side at events,” Lindsay said.
The Admiral’s Daughters has developed a great following with its biggest supporters backing their mission. Lindsay and her father continue to spread the word nationwide by sharing stories; uplifting and encouraging stories about the very same members of the coastal and military communities. Philanthropic spirit runs strong in this small company- November 2019 marks their 5 year anniversary and since its onset in 2014, The Admiral’s Daughters (its charity event, Rhythm & Boots) and the DADmiral have donated over $200,000 to military family charities & ocean-conservation charities.
