There are several similarities between Cecilia and Sarah. In junior high and high school Cecilia played point guard on various basketball teams. She is not a hockey mom, but a hockey aunt, and actually played hockey herself. She enjoys fishing, snowshoeing, skiing, snowmobiling, and has tasted moose. A "moose" room in her home has artwork of moose in the forms of paintings, statues, and lamps. Her husband's family members are big hunters of wild game in Colorado which is where they have their home.
