12 Dec Meet Jolie Goldring from In The Know Experiences, Mother of Two!
What do you love to do with your children? How old are they? And what is your greatest wish for them?
My kids are 12 and 8. I love traveling with them and seeing them experience new places for the first time. Being in the travel business I am lucky to visit wonderful and beautiful spots with my kids. My greatest wish for them is that they are happy and pursue things that interest them and that they love.
When and where are you the happiest?
I’m happiest when I’m in a warm weather destination with my kids – beach or city – doesn’t matter as long as we have fun and interesting things to see and do. I also love holiday dinners when we can all come together as a family like on Rosh Hashanah or Thanksgiving.
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I’m really dying to go to Southeast Asia!
Who has had the biggest influence upon you? And what quality do you most admire in a mother?
Actually my own Mom has had the greatest influence on me because she brought me into her travel business and I really learned everything from her! Patience, creativity and knowing how to be silly are the most important qualities in a mother.
What do you like to do for fun?
Go out to dinner with friends or my kids. Work out and I love amusement parks.
What is one of your favorite books? Movies?
My favorite book is Slow Motion by Dani Shapiro and I loved the movies Gone Girl and Goodfellas.
Besides motherhood, what other careers/opportunities have you enjoyed? What are your strongest qualities?
I have been a luxury travel consultant for 14 years. This requires me to be very organized and knowledgeable about destinations and hotels that matter to my clientele which is primarily Greenwich and Manhattan based.
What is your favorite type of food and what do you love to cook?
I love sushi and I prefer to bake over cooking but I make an excellent roast chicken.
What is your favorite time of the day and why?
I love early mornings with my coffee and my youngest before he’s off to school for the day.
Where is your favorite place to Party with Moms and what’s your favorite drink?
I love Eastend and my favorite drink there is a Champagne cocktail with an orange liqueur and craisins in it!
