About Us

Mike and Terri Fitch are native "Fifth Ward" Newporters.

Terri designed and Mike built Hawthorne House in 2002. Now a retired police officer, Mike is busy with never-ending building and landscaping projects at Hawthorne House (is any house ever finished?) and lawn mowing is his favorite “zen” activity. He enjoys snowmobiling in Vermont and kayaking in Newport and walks the Cliff Walk nearly every day.

Terri recently retired from her position as a human resources manager for a local insurance agency. However, she continues as a self-employed business forms distributor, a credit union director, and is an active Rotarian. Terri served as a Rotary District Governor in 2006-2007. She is not ready to completely retire!

Their daughter, Christina and her US Marine husband, Matthew, and their little son and daughter could be anywhere in the world . . . but they come home to visit as often as possible.
