Barbara Hawkins


Voice Description

My voice is friendly, warm and inviting... in the mid to low range of pitch and my age range is from 27 - 50. I grew up in the Miami Valley in Southwest Ohio and have no discernible dialect.

I am an expert at handling the most difficult copy and making the content clear and easy to understood for the listener. This includes all types of text and vocabularies from commercial to technical to medical.

I have a wide range of character voices. My background is in performing arts and theatre direction. I am adept enough at Spanish and French for short sentences or paragraphs.
