Hello!! My name is Lauren Byers and I live in Lula, GA with my husband Jimmy, our son James, and our daughter AnnMarie.  I am a graduate from North Georgia College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Marketing. Before beginning my career as a travel designer, I worked in the wedding planning business, as well as in travel transportation sales. I enjoy being a work from home mom. I am actively involved in our church where I work with preschoolers, volunteer in the nursery, and lead a couples small group Bible study along with my husband.  I am also a member of our county’s local fit4mom workout group. Walt Disney World is my family’s favorite vacation destination and we travel there as often as we can. My husband and I also love and look forward our annual all -inclusive getaways. These are the perfect style vacations for us.

I began my career as a vacation designer in 2014 after the birth of our son.   Travel has always been one of my passions. Staying home and raising a family has also been one of my greatest desires. Becoming a part of Joyful Journeys has allowed me to fulfill both of these longings in my life. I specialize in all-inclusive travel and all things Disney. It gives me such joy being able to help couples find the perfect destination for their honeymoon, anniversary or just a fun getaway; and customizing a unique Disney vacation that fits each family’s needs is just as fun as traveling there myself. My ultimate goal when working with clients is to make their vacation travel as stress-free and fun as possible.  Creating the backdrop for memories that will last a lifetime is my goal with each and every client that chooses to trust me with their vacation planning.

Are you ready to go on the vacation of a lifetime? Contact me today and let the stress-free planning begin!
