How long have you been at NSAI?
January 2014

What made you fall in love with music?
I was born in love with music… madly in love. People like Billy Joel, Ray Charles, Elvis, Kenny Rogers, Pat Benatar, Bon Jovi, Linda Ronstadt, The Judds, Barbara Mandrell and Michael Jackson just helped reinforce the fact that music would positively alter my life.

What was your first concert?
Neal McCoy

What genre of music do you listen to the most?
I lean toward pop and country music most days. However, it’s all based on my mood.

Who’s your favorite artist/band?
That’s like picking a favorite star in the sky. Corny, but true. It all depends. So many have rocked my world and been there through good times and bad. I’m a band kind of girl. So let’s go with Chicago, Journey, Bon Jovi, Diamond Rio, Boyz II Men and Rascal Flatts. However, I can’t leave out Garth Brooks, Elvis, Jo Dee Messina, John Mayer, Travis Tritt, Ray Charles, Jamie Foxx, Robin Thicke, Martina McBride, Jonny Lang and Whitney Houston. And then there’s…so you’re saying I have to pick just one?!

What do you like most about working at NSAI?
I love how every, single day amazingly talented songwriters create songs that can save lives, elicit laughs, draw out tears or entice people into dancing…in an average time of 3 minutes and 30 seconds. And I get to watch and experience that process. It is a blessing to be a part of NSAI.
