Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I have only voiced commercials in the past for radio advertisements. I have never had to do an accent but can be dramatic, funny or act out whatever the role might need.

My Voice Experience

In college, I worked for News Central the on campus news station as an assignment reporter. I also did an internship for a semester at a television station in Toledo, Ohio. After graduating from Central Michigan University, I worked for a small market radio station in Yuma, Arizona, where I was able to write radio advertisements and then do the voiceovers for them as well. I also worked for another small radio station in 29 Palms, California, writing press releases from their Associated Press wires and then would voice the news story for their daily news program.

My Training

I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Broadcast Journalism from Central Michigan University with a minor in Advertising.

As stated above, I worked for two radio stations which allowed me the opportunity to both use my creative writing skills and voice-over abilities.

My Studio Equipment

I currently do not have my own studio but can have access to one when needed.

Additional Skills

I am the wife of a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Marine Corps. It was always my dream when graduating from college to work in broadcast journalism. I always saw myself working on Entertainment Tonight. However, getting married changed my goals as we started a family. Because my husband traveled so much with the Marines, it was important for me to provide a stable environment for my children so we chose for me to stay at home with my children. My husband will soon be retiring and now it is my turn to seek out the opportunities I once longed for as a young professional.

My brief work experience made me realize that my true passion was not to be in front of the camera but behind it. Listening to those powerful voices I would hear at the movie theater or the sweet intonation of an announcer at an awards show or recognizing the silky tones of actors and actresses in commercials, I have a love for the power of a great voice!

Being able to earn a job as a professional voice over announcer would be a dream come true for me. I have a strong passion for a great voice. I would love the opportunity to finally make some of my dreams come true in life! Thank you for this opportunity.
