Interesting biography

In my last post, I speculated that the main author Sarah Smits-Bandstra is Luc de Nil's PhD student. Actually I found her "interesting" biography at the end of the article. Such short biographies are typically intended to present the author's academic background and research interests. Here it is:
Sarah Smits-Bandstra is a registered Speech-Language Pathologist and a doctoral candidate at the University of Toronto. She is married and has a beautiful baby boy named Reid. Her research interests include the neural mechanisms of disfluent speech, and stuttering treatment effectiveness in preschool and school-aged children.

She is clearly in "a chemically enduced form of madness" (citation by Rita Carter from her book about the human brain when talking about human love). I am wondering whether my mother would go to lengths to claim that a) she is married and b) has a beautiful boy named Tom? But then again she is 60, off the hard drugs and much wiser. :-)
