She loves New York and divides/divided her time between there and Los Angeles.
When she and her Sunset Beach (1997) co-star Timothy Adams were sitting together in Aaron Spelling's office, she found out that she and Tim only lived ten blocks apart in New York, they had the same friends and had worked as models for the same clients but, oddly enough, had never bumped into each other.
She was involved in a drama club and was also a cheerleader whilst attending high school.
She wrote a song for the Charmed (1998) episode in which she appeared ("Prewitched"). As a result, she is now a member of ASCAP (American Society of Composers Authors and Publishers). The song was entitled "Charmed Chant".
