My Background

“On y va!” (meaning “Let’s go!” in French) is one of my favorite phrases, perfect for my globetrotting lifestyle. I’ve traveled to all 7 continents, 75+ countries and been lucky enough to call 6 different countries home.

I became a travel advisor after 17 years in international operations & project management, leaving a successful career as an Executive Director at a large US bank in order to pursue my passion. My consulting and banking experience drives my commitment to excellence, thorough due diligence and client focus. Living abroad has instilled a passion to help others experience new cultures and beautiful places around the world.

I’ve had many life defining moments while traveling, the first when I moved to Hong Kong at age 22. It was the first stamp in my passport and I’ve since spent 12+ years living in London, Edinburgh, Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels. Apart from the amazing places I‘ve lived, some my favorite destinations are Alaska, Antarctica, Greece, Bhutan, the Galapagos, Chile, Brazil and Botswana.

I understand that travel preferences are personal and need customization. I enjoy working with my clients to help them find the right destination, property or experience for them.

Everything I'd hoped for and more


Reviewed on: 30 Aug 2017

I had two cruises booked with Lauren that my husband and I took this summer. The first, with Uncruise, was so perfect for what we were looking for. Both of us really wanted to see the best that nature had to offer, including whale encounters, eagles, bears, and glaciers. We were not especially interested in going to touristy towns. I was apprehensive about the adventure level of activities offered, since I have a lot of mobility issues, but she assured me there would be plenty to keep me interested. She was SO right. It was one of the more memorable trips of my life.The second cruise of the summer was with Azamara. I had expressed an interest in Scandanavia, but was not really interested in a large ship. She suggested a Baltic cruise that included St. Petersburg. I was hesitant about Russia, but I liked the size of the ship, length of the cruise, and the rest of the itinerary. Ironically, she was absolutely right. My favorite stop was St. Pete. Her instincts were perfect!

Amazing experience!

After a trip to Hawaii. I talked about how much I loved the whales. Lauren recommended a trip to Alaska, to see those same whales in a whole different environment, with very different behavior. I told her some friends had told me their Alaska cruise experience had a few whale sightings off in the distance, and I would have been very disappointed with that. Lauren encouraged us to consider a small ship. Uncruise, which is all about nature, was certainly a different option, and not one I would have considered on my own. I took her advise, and it was one of my most memorable tips ever, with more whale sittings than I could count, many right alongside our small ship! She knew, better than me, what I would like.
