In 2008 she toured as principal cellist with the Washburn Symphony Orchestra around Honduras. She says, "It was such a humbling experience to travel around a third world country and see their love and appreciation of music. It made me so grateful for what I had and inspired me to work even harder for my musical career."
Her hobbies and interest include cooking, traveling, reading, running, billiards, cats, and dogs. Her favorite thing about teaching is playing music with her students.
