Hi! I'm Lauren.

I love to travel. And I have for as long as I can remember. It’s a passion that’s taken me to over 40 countries around the world for leisure – and business. It’s really all I think about.

In 2012, I co-founded Departful.com to share my travel experiences. Departful has since provided accessible and thoughtful travel inspiration to over a million readers. It’s been recognized as Canada’s Best Travel Blog and has allowed me to help amplify and work alongside leading travel brands, destinations and tour companies around the world.

Today, I manage Departful Media, a platform that connects aspiring travellers with the inspiration, destinations and brands they need to take their trip to the next level. We work with a global community of travel writers, photographers and videographers to produce great content across our multiple publications, including Departful.com, Prostly.com, Queen+Local.com, and collaborate with a growing network of partners who provide incredible and unique travel experiences.

While all of this work is exciting, the thing I love to do most is connect travellers with really great and fully-customized experiences – designed leveraging my own travels, and with expert insight from Departful Media’s network of travellers and travel journalists. While I focus on providing a personalized and high-touch experience always, I’m here to help with any type of holiday, from luxury resorts to backpacking adventures and from multi-country itineraries to once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Whether you’re exploring new cultures or planting yourself on a beach, it’s your time so make it count.
