Meet the Wanderlocal Team
About Lauren + Daniel
For nearly a decade, Lauren Davenport and Daniel Fernandez pursued the American dream of owning their own business. They built a successful healthcare communications firm and had it all. The house. The cars. The stuff – all the stuff. But, after watching a documentary on minimalism they sold everything in January 2019, except for their business, and took off to travel the world. Their passion for exploring new places, finding new adventures, and learning new things is contagious.
Our 2021 Adventure
It all started when Lauren tripped over Chance, Daniel’s miniature longhaired dachshund in 2011.
With a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a passion for storytelling, Lauren loves inspiring people to live their best lives. As an award-winning entrepreneur and brand strategist, Wanderlocal is a natural next step in making a difference in the world.
As a seasoned marketer for Fortune 500 companies and a talented photographer, Daniel’s love for travel is the driving force behind Wanderlocal. His positivity and energy are palpable both on and off- camera. Add in a crazy, silly sense of humor, and it’s simply impossible not to like him.
