Born and raised in the Bay Area, Lauren has been passionate about traveling her entire life. Lauren started her hospitality career in kitchens after studying Culinary Arts at Western Culinary Institute in Portland, OR.
Lauren has moved around the states cooking and working under some of the best chefs in the country including interning at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. She has worked in some of San Francisco and Scottsdale’s finest restaurants. After 6 years of working in the culinary industry, her eye for travel became more apparent and she knew a change was in order. After planning and booking her first trip to Puerto Rico to visit relatives, she became enraptured with all aspects of travel. The travel bug has been set in FOR LIFE! Lauren has worked for various hotel brands including Starwood, Hyatt Regency, and Hilton Hotels.
When she returned home to the Bay Area in 2008, Lauren knew that working in hospitality in travel and hotels was her true calling. Lauren accepted a position as the Luxury Travel Agent Specialist at Cavallo Point Lodge in Sausalito, a luxury resort located in Fort Baker about 15 minutes outside of San Francisco in Marin County.
She works with luxury travel agents throughout the United States and International including Virtuoso, Signature and Andrew Harper agencies to name a few.
