Many years ago, my colleagues begged me to record their dental office telephone greetings so they'd sound more professional. I thought, "Hey, I should be getting paid for this!" Conveniently, my husband and I had a recording studio, so, here I am.

With years of musical theater experience, several trophies in high school speech and debate, and a mother who corrected every grammatical error I made, I developed a skill I wasn't even aware of...er, of which I wasn't even aware (sorry, Mom).

I may be known as "The Voice Mail Lady" among friends, but as a high school cheerleader in California, I learned to play a darn good bubble-headed blonde or a "Valley Girl". Earning a dental degree and teaching at the University of Southern California gave me the ability to sound authoritative and trustworthy while correctly pronouncing things like "Bisoprolol/Hydrochlorothiazide".

Since I'm used to lecturing for up to two hours at a time, I have no problem keeping long scripts interesting and fresh from start to finish. My students frequently comment that they feel like I'm speaking directly to them.
