Hello, I'm Lauren.

Vacations have been shown to improve both physical and mental health, improve our relationships, as well as boost happiness.  They help our overall well-being.  After seeing these positive effects on my family, I knew I wanted to help others do the same. 


I work with couples, families, and friends, as well as large and multigenerational groups.  I specialize in travel to Disney, Universal, cruises, and all-inclusive resorts.  

I am a Disney College of Knowledge graduate. I am up-to-date on the latest park happenings, and I know how to create the most valuable vacation packages for my clients.  I am an avid theme park fan and cruiser.  My knowledge allows me to provide my clients with insider tips and tricks for making the most of their time in the parks and on the ship.

I graduated from the University of Iowa with a nursing degree and from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a master's degree.  I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and now reside in Iowa with my husband and four kids.  I would love to help you plan your next vacation!

“Lauren has been wonderful to work with! She helped us book our resort, many character dining experiences and other special things. She notifies us if we need to make a decision on something and helps keep us on the right timeline. She takes into consideration our budget and our families interests. She has lots of experience with her own family at Disney and has great knowledge of what kids of all ages enjoy. I feel very fortunate I found her to help us plan our trip!! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone and we would love to work with her again for future trips!!”

"Our family has used Lauren for multiple trips, including two cruises (one large multigenerational cruise and the other an adults-only sailing.) She is AMAZING to work with and helped to make our trips magical. From picking out the best rooms for our family to recommending excursions to provide us with insider tips, Lauren is very attentive to detail and does everything promptly and thoughtfully. We love working with her so much that we already have two more trips booked for next year!"

"Lauren has been an excellent travel advisor for our family. In addition to Disney World and Universal she helps us with our cruise trips, too. She has assisted us in comparing cruise lines & itinerary options for a number of different trips including family cruises, adults/couples cruises, and multigenerational trips. For our large party cruises, she was able to work with members of our extended family to find rooms that fit the party size, budget and needs of each group while also securing rooms near each other. Her knowledge, response time and communication skills make it very easy to work with her!"
