Newport Shipyard Personality: Lauren Woods


For anyone who has been to Newport Shipyard during the last two years, or to Newport Shipyard Outfitters since its opening earlier this summer, surely you have met the newest addition to the Shipyard family, Lauren Woods.

A Middletown native, Lauren has become the 'go-to' person for Newport Shipyard retail gear and accessories at both our onsite Ship's Store and at our new retail space on Bannister's Wharf. A warm, friendly, hard-working, and extremely organized young lady with a degree in marketing, Lauren is also dockmaster Eli Dana's 'better' half. If you haven't met Lauren, be sure to introduce yourself the next time you're at the Shipyard.
