The Passions Behind the People
Each month we will be sharing the passions behind the people in the DMC Network. This month the spotlight is on Laurie Stroll, President and Owner of Newport Hospitality, our DMC partner in Newport, Rhode Island.
The hobby... Traveling, cruising and seeing the world….love Hawaii!
The food... Watermelon – I absolutely love watermelon and will eat it almost every day in the summer! I can’t get enough.
The time of day... The evenings when I can finally sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee and a little “nosh” with my hubby… we call it our 9 o’clock coffee… something we have done for over 30 years…
The color... Purple has always been my favorite color… every shade… so pretty!
The friend... Cheryl Twiss and I have known each other since we were 10 years old. Falling out of touch after our High School graduation, we reconnected at our 10 year H.S. reunion and our personal lives have intertwined with our work lives ever since…through the hotel business to Newport Hospitality... We have been through personal, family and business ups and downs always supporting each other through whatever comes our way.
The smell... The salt air from the Ocean
The exercise... If it weren’t for Jen my trainer I would never work out… she keeps me sane
The quote... You will never regret being kind
The joke… I like any jokes that make me laugh… I hate it when I don’t get it, so be careful with me.
The music… I love the music from the 70’s and 80’s… reminds me of being young again…
The song… James Taylor “You’ve Got a Friend”
The alternate job… Taking care of a family member
The TV Show… Parenthood
The holiday… I love Christmas because it brings family and friends together…not the shopping part
The drink… I like the sweet "Girly" drinks, I am a lightweight!
The piece of advice… You seriously have no idea what people are dealing with in their personal lives so just be nice, it’s that simple.
President & Owner
