In May of 2006, Lauren Alicia de Remer received her Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a creative writing emphasis from Whittier College in southern California. Having completed editorial internships prior to graduation, her writing was soon featured in Foam, Riviera and Scuba Diving Magazine. In the years following, she spent time working in the non-profit sector at Tompkins Conservation which allowed her the opportunity to work alongside philanthropists from all over the world. Through the professional relationships she made and inner passion she found for protecting the environment, Lauren set forth on a new path towards responsible adventure travel.
She spent five years working in sales & marketing at O.A.R.S. whitewater rafting and three in client services at Mountain Travel Sobek managing international trip packages for clients such as National Geographic Adventures and New York Times Journeys. Lauren seeks to involve herself in mission-driven organizations and continues to take on freelance projects in her spare time.
In 2018, Lauren unfortunately lost both her 11-yr old cousin and boyfriend to brain cancers. Following such traumatic events, she has felt a huge sense of responsibility to shift gears and support others impacted by cancer. In her free time, she enjoy rock climbing, sailing and currently resides alongside her border collie on a 90-yr old wooden boat she inherited from her late boyfriend Dana.
