At an early age, it was clear that Lauren’s favorite subject was travel. She ventured outside of the country for the first time in third grade and so began her love affair with travel. At ten years old, she began making detailed guides and itineraries, which allowed her to discover the beauty and uniqueness of each destination. Fast forward to today, where Lauren’s unquenchable desire and enthusiasm has led her to explore over sixty three countries. Her world travels and exposure to diverse cultures and international luxury hotels ultimately led her to pursue a career in the luxury travel industry. After graduating from Boston College, Lauren worked in lifestyle management and hospitality, where she garnered more knowledge and expertise of the luxury landscape and built long-lasting relationships with clients. She then took a leap of faith as she decided to solely pursue a career in travel. She has been quoted in Forbes and Travel Weekly and is making a name for herself in the business. She was nominated as Travel + Leisure’s Rising Star in 2021 and was recently awarded as part of the STARS Celestial Club for 2022. She was also named as Travel Agent Central’s 30Under30 for 2022. Lauren recently launched her own agency and serves as the Founder & CEO of TripMe. As a millennial with vast travel knowledge and experience, she is in pursuit of a limitless career. Lauren hopes to leverage her all-consuming passion to cultivate genuine connections and engage the next generation of travelers for years to come.
