She was born in Saratoga Springs, but she has called Rochester her home since her college days. She loves attending RPO concerts and attending Geva Theatre.

Her latest joy is her first grandchild, Autumn, with whom she enjoys instilling the love of music through singing and dancing. She completely believes that music has a unique power to engage a child and to broaden his/her capacity for learning. “Music is like the sun … its rays can touch all areas of childhood development.”
