I haven't been everywhere,
... but it 's on my list.
For the love of travel
Travel is like oxygen for me. I love the dreaming, the planning, the anticipation, and the wonder of somewhere new. When I became a mom, I knew I wanted to create that sense of wanderlust and curiosity in my kids. Travel and “showing them the world” became one of the defining identities of our family.
As life has gotten busier and as we’ve begun to lead more separate lives, I see how crucial vacations are for my own family’s connection. And that’s why I created Show Them the World, a travel concierge service for busy families longing to reconnect and see the world together. I want to help you create lifelong memories and “happiness anchors” your family will remember forever.

Sara left her teaching career to be a Mom and has dabbled in various jobs since then looking for a passion project that could fit into their busy lives. In 2022, Show Them the World designed the Jenkins family vacation to Hawaii, an unforgettable trip that fueled Sara’s desire to see the world with her family. In fact, after that vacation, Sara got her first and only tattoo - Ohana - which means family in Hawaiian. Every time she sees it, the memories make her smile. Now Sara gets to design "tattoo-worthy" trips for all her clients!
Sara has an MA in Education from Nova Southeastern University and a BS in Education from Indiana University. Sara lives in Zionsville, Indiana with her husband and two girls. In her downtime, you can find her at the pool with her competitive swimmer or at the stables with her equestrian.
