Luxury Leisure Travel Specialist

I began my career as a world history teacher who preferred to travel during school breaks. After several years of teaching, I found that I was living for my next opportunity to explore the world around me and my entrepreneurial spirit took over. I knew that the next best step for me was to become a travel agent specializing in luxury leisure experiences. 

While I book vacations to many destinations for the discerning traveler, I am an expert in the Caribbean and Mexico. Too many people assume that they can book their own trip by taking advantage of online booking sites, but there's many advantages to booking with an experienced travel agent:

  • I have traveled to nearly every property that I book within the Caribbean. This allows me to provide my clients with accurate, detailed information about the resort that they choose. I am honest and upfront, and I am skilled at matching my travelers to perfect resort for their desired experience.
  • I am personally invested in every trip that I plan. I love that my clients consider me to be a trusted resource. Many of the people who book with me know that they can count on my recommendations. They trust that I will steer them in the right direction. 
  • I am connected in the industry. Throughout the year I spend time attending conferences and trade shows that allow me to stay up to date with what is new and changing in travel. I use this as a time to further my existing relationships while also developing new contacts with those who can enhance your travel experience.

Ultimately, my passion lies in allowing others to experience the world around us. This is also why my husband and I created the Travel for Hope Foundation. Our foundation provides individuals who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness the gift of a dream vacation. Each year, we send one person on a trip of a lifetime, and it's so rewarding to know that they are enjoying a grand adventure with their loved ones.

To put it simply, travel is transformational and leaves an impression on our lives. When I talk about my own explorations or previous trips I have booked for clients, people can hear the excitement and dedication in my voice. I am a professional agent who is well-connected in the industry, knowledgeable and extremely dedicated to my clients. You can expect me to go above and beyond for you.

When you think of travel, think of me. Contact me today to start planning your next trip!

Lauren brought her destination knowledge, and got to know the travel style of me and my family, to best match us to properties and events at our destination that were what we were excited to experience.

So professional and knowledgeable

Reviewed By Jen - Orlando, Florida | Traveled to Caribbean
We’ve used Lauren’s travel services on several occasions - cruises, European travel, etc. She has always been extremely dedicated in making sure our trips have been nothing short of perfection. She takes all the work and the fuss out of planning a trip. She even helps after the trip is over - for example, when we got back from a cruise I realized I left a few personal items in our stateroom. Lauren took the time to make several calls to Royal Caribbean to get my stuff back.

Also, if you aren’t sure of where you want to go, Lauren knows all the best places. I just tell her my budget and if I want a family friendly resort or romantic couples getaway and she quickly replies back with excellent choices that are always on point. She even takes the time to find the best flights that have shorter travel times or zero layovers.

You won’t be disappointed with Lauren. She can save you money, and she has a great reputation with many of the resorts and can get you upgrades and other perk

Best Travel Agent Ever

Reviewed By Bolemon - Greenville, SC | Traveled to Bora Bora ~ French Polynesia ~ South Pacific
Lauren has planned numerous trips for our family through the years, maybe close to 10 trips! Every single trip has been seamless and easy because of her careful planning. She’s sent us to the other side of the world (Bora Bora) on a trip of a lifetime, and she’s planned 2 Disney world trips that included our 4 children. I know first hand the value of using a travel agent, and would recommend her without reservation. She is responsive, organized, and informed.

Last Minute Travel

Reviewed By Kristin - Lakewood Ranch, FL | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Lauren is extremely attentive to exactly what you are looking for in terms of travel, resorts and activities. She has answers to any questions you may have . She is also extremely prompt in getting information to you and extremely knowledgeable on locations and resorts. About a month before my husband and I were to travel to a location in the US we changed our minds and contacted Lauren. We specifically wanted an adult-only resort on a beautiful beach, with an all-inclusive option. She told us about LeBlanc Spa & Resort in Cancun and booked it for us. It was the most beautiful resort with the most attentive service and the most relaxing trip we had ever taken. We loved it so much that we had her book it again for the following year. We changed our minds about a location again this year and Lauren took the time to give us options and book us elsewhere without any problem.
