  • Sarah's wanderlust tendencies can be directly attributed to growing up all over the world, thanks to her father's 30-year service in the United States Air Force.
  • As a passionate fan of theme parks far and wide, Sarah has previously been involved with Dollywood's Insider program. She has annual passes to both Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort.
  • In 2019, while six months pregnant with her youngest child, Sarah traveled across the US in an RV with her family from her hometown of Birmingham, Alabama, to Los Angeles, California, and back.


Sarah has been writing online in various forums for over ten years. In addition to her own website,, she picked up freelance writing in 2021 for outlets like Conde Nast Traveler, Yahoo, Insider, Attractions Magazine, and more. Sarah loves to share the realities of traveling with kids — both the good and the not-so-good. She hopes her writing will encourage others to travel because adventure is out there.


Sarah graduated magna cum laude from Auburn University in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science in apparel merchandising and a minor in business.
