Laura Cahill

Coming from a military family, the travel bug bit Laura Cahill early on. Born in Honolulu and raised in the Chicago area, she traveled all over the US with her family as a child - particularly to the Rocky Mountain West to explore its national parks. Before making her way to the Pacific Northwest, Laura worked several summers in Glacier National Park, Montana as a boat captain and naturalist. She holds a Master’s Degree in Cultural Geography, where her research took her to the Republic of Georgia for several months. It was there, while researching families involved in rural to urban migration and leading a group of high school teachers on a cultural and career development trip, that she realized how transformative travel can be for people and those around them. Since then, Laura has worn many hats in the travel industry and strives to create unique and authentic travel experiences that touch both the traveler and the local community. Her love of travel has taken her throughout Southeast Asia, Europe, Latin America, and Antarctica. When not traveling, you can find Laura photographing graffiti in the city or wildflowers in the woods, playing roller derby, or trying to find the perfect street food.
