Our Story

Our Story: After meeting in graduate school at UGA, we were married in 2011 in Marietta, Georgia. A year later, we joined the Peace Corps as environmental conservation volunteers and embarked on our adventure in Paraguay!

Ben and I awoke this morning to find our Peace Corps Application Status had been updated. We have officially passed the rigorous dental review portion of the application process. Our teeth are healthy enough to go abroad!

Additionally, I received an email from the Office of Medical Services indicating a missing lab test for Hepatitis B surface antibody. Although the doctor's office told me they had completed all the required tests, they did not realize that this specific test was not included in their typical Hepatitis panel. I will have to go back to their office next week to get the test done.

On the bright side, we are thrilled that the medical office is even looking at our paperwork this early. Our files are no longer gathering dust. We are one step closer to finding the answer to everyone's favorite question: "Where are you going?" We would love to find out about where you would like to go if you were in our shoes. Share your dream destination with us by completing the poll to the right!

Next Steps: Sarah will complete her missing lab work; Ben gets to wait some more, but will hear from them soon! In the meantime, we are trying our hands at learning Spanish by revisiting my old college textbook.
