And now … the life of the party. Seriously, Sarah Beck is one of the funniest people you’ll ever meet, and I’m so incredibly excited that she’s coming with The Padre and me!
No stranger to international travel, Sarah has spent a summer in Hungary before, helping with sports and English camps for teens in state-run orphanages. She’s also been to Jamaica (ya, man!), as well as to Canada and Mexico.
What She Does
Sarah is a K-State grad, which is how she knows The Nomad (and, by extension, me). An FMLA consultant, she knows more about deductibles, HSAs and COBRA than any sane person should.
She throws Disney quotes into everyday conversation and considers it her responsibility to keep everyone around her up to date on the new-fangled slang kids are using these days (even though most of it is made up … Shh! Don’t tell!).
Need to Know
An amateur videographer, Sarah has done all sorts of video work, from silly event promos to more serious affairs like weddings and sporting events (“t want to pay out the nose for a professional, but would like a step up from Uncle Phil and his Handycam.”)
When asked about any skeletons in her closet that she felt should be brought to light before departing on this trip, Sarah only had this to say:
“Well… there is someone you should probably know about, as he’ll probably make the papers while I’m gone anyway. We live under the same roof, but he’s rude, crude, and likes to ruffle feathers – which is why I usually keep him locked in the freezer. I’m of course referring to my 3’ penguin, Waddles. It’s pretty much been a dream of his to egg the Globe Theatre while hurling Shakespearean insults off a double-decker bus. Horrible, horrible dream to have. But, thankfully, he’s a flightless bird, and spent all his airfare money on halibut and leopard-seal boots. So, he’ll be roosting at home for this one.”
