She's nice and humble person from what I've seen from our FB friendship. She have many videos and pictures of herself.

She and Nikki Glaspie made the cover of Modern Drummer a year or so ago. She also has an album to her credit. BTW she had some gigs with Gary Dourdan (CSI)...

Thanks for the leads, good to have some names.

She's one of the most exciting players i've come accross in years, her dynamic attack is amazing. John, it must be incredibly gratifying to see a student turn out so well.
