Heather Lipe

Owner & Travel Advisor

Hello! I’m Heather, owner of Enchanting Excursions. My love for travel began at a very young age, and I am SO fortunately that my passion for seeing the world has now become my full-time job. I am wife to Josh, mom to Nixon and Kenzi, and lover of all things travel!!!! When I’m not running our agency, you can find me hanging out with my kids, boating or working out. I love being on the water, trying new restaurants, shopping, the beach, and of course – VACATIONS! My favorite places I’ve traveled to are Exuma (swimming with the pigs was AMAZING), Atlantis, Mexico, Antigua and sailing with Virgin Voyages.

Michele Schrougham

Travel Advisor

Hi everyone! My name is Michele (with one L) and I am so excited to have the opportunity to help you plan your next amazing adventure! I love all things travel – from my first step into the airport or my first foot into the car—I live for each vacation moment! While I love exploring, my happiest place is sitting anywhere on a beach without a care in the world. In my free time, you can find me sipping coffee with a historical fiction book in hand, binge watching tv drama, or laughing with my husband and super adorable five-year old daughter. My favorite places I’ve traveled to is Thailand.

Brenda Palmer

Travel Advisor

Hello! My name is Brenda. My husband Jeremy and I have four teenagers. My goal with family travel has always been to create memories that will last a lifetime. I have traveled to numerous Caribbean islands, Central America, Hawaii, and several US city destinations. We have done cruises, all-inclusives, Disney vacations, and all things in between.  Fun fact, our family has never traveled to the same place twice.  We live in a big beautiful world with so much to see.  I can’t wait to help you plan your next adventure!

Travel Advisor

Hello! I’m Brennen from Upland, Indiana! I’m so excited to be on this adventure with you! My favorite place I’ve ever traveled is Maui, Hawaii, where I will be getting married in February! The smell as soon as you step off the plane is something I’ll never forget. Truly magical. Someday I hope to visit Australia! One travel item I cannot live without is…a GoPro! 

Lea Lautzenheiser

Travel Advisor

Hi, my name is Lea and I am from Edon, Ohio.  My love for travel began in high school when I first started going on mission trips (which still hold a big place in my heart). My husband Scott and I have been married for almost 14 years and cruising is our favorite way to travel because of all the different places we get to experience in one trip! We also love all-inclusive resorts and take most of our trips to the Caribbean and Mexico. One destination on my bucket list: Machu Picchu!
