My Voice Experience

I'm an African American female voice over artist with a background in theatre. Since the age of 11, acting has been a part of my life. Also, I've won numerous awards traveling across the country for speech-debate, and oral interpretation competitions which have given me unlimited opportunities to "play" with the spoken word.

Working in the corporate world for several years has given me the skills to master a professional corporate delivery. I'm also a teacher who's had the awesome honor of teaching kids in grades K-8. I have a great love for words and will bring the words of your project to life!
