- My favorite thing to do is take care of my kids! My work in music has enabled me to be home with them most days and still have a very rewarding career. It's exhausting sometimes, but it's worth it.
- I have a strong interest in brain science, as it applies to teaching, performing, raising my children, and raising awareness about autism spectrum disorders. I call myself an “armchair neurologist.”
- I love to cook, and our family is into healthy living and lots of outdoor activities.
