Lauren Schultheiss MBA, VTAFounder & CEO
Lauren first entered the travel industry more than two decades ago as part of her mother’s brick and mortar agency that was based in Roswell, GA. As the industry changed, her mom encouraged her to consider a backup plan. Lauren earned a degree in media relations from Bowling Green State University in Ohio and spent nearly fifteen years working in finance, contracts administration and project management. She earned a senior management position but always knew that she wanted to follow her entrepreneurial spirit. Lauren started Big Creek Travel in 2018 and has spent time as both an advisor and an owner. Lauren’s passion is helping coach other entrepreneurs, and she supports Big Creek Travel’s affiliates with her business and marketing expertise. She also oversees all back office administration and the strategic operations for the company.
