The Preston House & Hotel Owners, Riverhead Petrocelli Sisters

This week’s Power Women Podcast is with the Petrocelli Sisters. Jennifer, Jacqueline and Alexandra manage their families Riverhead businesses of Preston House & Hotel, Atlantis Banquets, the Long Island Aquarium, and the Sea Star Ballroom.

They talk about how their dad, Joseph Petrocelli, influenced them to work hard and keep their life balanced till this very day. They then discuss how they manage to keep balanced despite growing up privileged and also advise on how to oversee businesses that are family oriented.

For their secrets to success, the three sisters advise to keep learning, prove yourself by working hard, and not to be intimidated by who is around you, a lesson Jennifer learned by working in a field dominated by males.
