Who is Catholic Drinkie?
“In Catholicism, the pint, the pipe and the Cross can all fit together.” – GK Chesterton
Hi, I’m Sarah, affectionately known as “Vabs” to my friends. I was born and raised in the Atlanta area. I left her southern roots to pursue my collegiate endeavors at Saint Mary’s College at Notre Dame where I majored in communication studies and religious studies. While at school, I worked for the Notre Dame daily student newspaper, where I ran the Opinion section for three years while also serving as Assistant Managing Editor. I spent one summer interning at The Washington Times writing editorials, serving as Letters Editor and showing me that I, too, could run for public office one day.
After graduating, I worked for a Congressman in the United States House of Representatives for 3 years before finally realizing I could turn my social media addiction into a paying career. I now work in computer software as a social media consultant and trainer.
I’m a beer connoisseur who is also a Catholic geek who has somehow managed to fool many into thinking I’m “cool” with my social media presence as the “Catholic Drinkie” where I blog about living as a faithful young adult Catholic and my passion for a good beer. I also love Notre Dame football, the Atlanta Braves, traveling, 80s music, my iPhone, Wayfarers and Members Only jacket.
I dream of one day having a beer with the Pope or Cardinal Timothy Dolan.
