Back in 2018, she worked along with former First Lady Laura Bush to host the Dallas and Fort Worth Celebration of Reading event. The event was previously led by the late former First Lady Barbara Bush, which she organized through the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy.
Around a week prior to the event, Brill even sat for an interview with 5 Points Blue, talking about the importance of literacy. Further, she also focused on the fact that education is not just meant for children but adults as well. She said,
No matter what your political persuasion, everyone agrees that all of us should be able to read and it’s something that we should be teaching in our schools, we do teach in our schools, but we need to make sure that we’re allowing children to know how to read and then have that tool to enjoy it
Well, in course of her run to promote literacy, she has participated in various reading advocacy programs including The Cowboys Association at Gabe Allen Elementary School in South Dallas. Moreover, she is also associated with the Cowboys Wives Association, which includes famous former players, coaches, and their families.

The couple reportedly met a lot before they actually decided to walk down the aisle.
The Duo Met At Princeton University

In a radio interview with 5 Points Blue, she stated that she took notice of him in a lab, which she attended once a week. But they didn’t get to talk for a long time as Jason would leave the class soon on daily basis.
Eventually, after a long time, Brill finally asked him the reason she left the lab earlier to which he said that he had baseball practice. She said,
We would have a lab once a week and the lab was on Thursdays from one until four and so I, of course, noticed him early on. I realized he left the first lab early, and the next week he left lab early, and then the next week… so I thought, what is going on? I gathered my courage and I asked him, ‘Why are you always leaving lab early?’ And he looked at me like, ‘Well, don’t you know I have baseball practice?
That day on, they developed a good friendship which eventually turned into a romantic relationship and eventually into marriage.
