Aymara was originally born in Cuba and migrated to the US with her parents when she was 4 years old. After traveling the country alongside her husband, she moved to Key West in 2017 while he was on his last deployment and they now live in paradise with their 2 dogs, Grace and Forrest. Since she was a little girl she has had a passion for animals of all kinds. She is currently on her way to finishing her bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science and plans on attending veterinary school after. Her goal is to work for a rescue organization, such as the ASPCA, and eventually open a non-profit rescue of her own down the line in hopes to help animals in need.

Lauren McLaughlin
Client Care Representative

Lauren was originally born in the Philadelphia area. She completed a bachelor’s in business management from West Chester University in West Chester, PA. While attending school she began working in the restaurant industry and grew to love opening new restaurants. This love is what brought Lauren to Key West in 2005 when she moved down to help open Rum Barrel. For a few years Lauren traveled to New Jersey for the summer and Key west in the winter to work in different restaurants and live the “snow bird” lifestyle, but in 2010 she became a full time resident of Key West. 

When not at work you can find Lauren on or near the ocean, usually with at least one dog by her side. Lauren and JJ (her pug) spend most of their free time boating, fishing, paddling boarding, running, biking or just relaxing Key West style.
