Founder and CEO
Our owner, Lauren Schultheiss, is a business and marketing professional who works with travel agency owners and independent agents to help them grow their businesses and streamline their processes. She started in the industry over 30 years ago learning from her mom, who owned a travel agency. When the industry strated to change, her mom encouraged her to consider a corporate job, so Lauren spent 15 years working in corporate management. She couldn’t ignore her passion for travel and her love of being an entrpreneur, however, so she started Big Creek Travel, acting as both agent and owner. Today, Lauren focuses 100% of her time on business operations and helping others succeed as agents. She holds an MBA, an advanced certificate in Marketing from the University of Georgia, and has completed ASTA’s Verified Travel Advisor (VTA) program.
