Since founding Events by Sorrell, Sorrell has been featured in Boston Voyager, Basic Invite, Seacoast Weddings, New Hampshire Magazine’s Bride and more!

“I have always believed in hard work and continual growth. Keep moving and try like mad to move forward, you may not always go in the right direction and that is OK just be sure to re-route when you realise you missed a turn.”

Interview

IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD SPEND IT… playing tennis with my husband outside.

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS… seeing Manchester United play at Old Trafford on Boxing Day with all of our children.

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS… Ireland. I would love to go to New Zealand but I don’t love long plane rides (unless it is first class! Ha)

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS… being a part of the special celebration.

IF I DIDN’T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD BE/DO… a professional Netflix watcher.

IF I COULD GIVE NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE IT WOULD BE… don’t go overboard with Pinterest.

I LOVE WHERE I LIVE BECAUSE… I live in paradise – a quintessential New England village.

IF I COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IT WOULD BE… Francestown, NH or Staunton, VA.

MY FAVOURITE MOVIES ARE... Breakfast Club, Shawshank Redemption, The Blind Side, Bohemian Rhapsody

MOST MEMORABLE MEAL I’VE EVER EATEN WAS... January 2013. My mother had been going trough Cancer treatment for months and really had not been eating. After one of our son’s recitals we had our whole family together and went to dinner. My mom ate and laughed and sprung to life after some long torturous months. It was delicious food and such a happy celebration of so many things. Sadly my mom died a month later but that meal is forever etched in my mind.

THE PETS I OWN ARE… Ellie (Bernese Mountain Dog) and George (Springer Spaniel).
