Family and Romance Specialist
I'm Lara Ashbaugh - My core value in life is Work hard/play hard. As my client I will work hard to find, organize and book the trip you've been imagining. And I play hard meaning I still travel myself - I walk the walk and have been to many of the destinations I send my clients to.
I have the professional experience and the personal experience to take your vacation to the next level.
I've been an avid traveler since my first trip with my family at 5 years old.
My favorite memories from my childhood are of our family vacations. Some were small weekend trips and others were multi-week affairs - plus everything in between.
That's why I'm a family travel specialist. I believe the in the value of experiences and connections made on a vacation together. Whether it's a small family trip or a multi-generational family reunion - I'm there to help with the planning and organization.
I'm a mom to a 3 year old - who took his first plane trip at 9months old. I understand the unique challenges that traveling with a child brings. I'm had moments where I questioned my decision to take the trip altogether and I've had moments where his smile and excitement make all the challenges fade away - and remind me WHY I did this in the first place.
My husband and I have been married for over 15+ years - we had many years of travel with just the two of us. So, in addition to a family specialist I'm also a romance specialist. I know the value of time spent with your significant other. Relationships take work to grow and maintain - you learn a lot about someone when you travel together!
I'm passionate about travel, I'm organized, and I'm knowledgeable. I'd love to help you with your travel dreams!

Disney Halloween trip for spooky loving kiddo
She also got us reservations at excellent restaurants that catered to my wife’s gluten allergy. We were not over scheduled at all and were able to relax and have fun. Saved me a bunch of time in researching and bargain hunting I normally have to do. Excellent agent.
