Lawson Rothgeb

Lawson Rothgeb has stacked up a laundry list of travel experiences across the world discovering countless new places and faces along the way. Through her many travel pursuits, Lawson cherishes the chance not only to see the world for herself but also to share this opportunity with her clients. 

After enjoying an international career with a large, household name in cosmetics, Lawson’s wanderlust finally got the best of her. She embarked on a one year hiatus aboard a sailboat and never looked back. Her background in business and experience sailing led her to the super yacht industry where she learned more than a thing or two about exceptional service. During her time as a yacht purser and concierge to some of the world’s largest privately-owned yachts, Lawson was tasked with finding unique experiences ashore, obtaining the most sought after reservations, and guaranteeing that guests’ expectations were surpassed every time.

Lawson leverages her expertise in luxury hospitality and high-attention to detail to design one-of-a-kind itineraries that are flawlessly tailored to fit each clients’ personal travel style and preferences. She treasures receiving photos and messages from her clients of their “wow” moments while traveling.

Lawson has traveled to over 50 countries across  six continents. Her favorite trips have been safaris in Africa, and she loves the opportunity to  convince anyone that hasn’t been on safari that it should be their next trip! Some of her other top destinations include Portofino, Italy; Mallorca, Spain; Roberston, South Africa; and Saint Barthélemy.

A North Carolina native, Lawson grew up in Raleigh and received her BA from Wake Forest University. She later earned her MBA from Emory University.
