My Voice Experience
Currently producing the narration for another audiobook with audible.com. I record weekly for Learning Ally [ formerly Reading for the Blind and Dyslexic]. These recordings have ranged from professional textbooks, college and high school, to novels. I have recorded commercials for Public Radio in Monterey CA. My voice has been recorded on voice answering machines private and professional. I have worked for the last two summers with a non-profit, called Refugee Transitions where, apart from teaching, I've set up my recording studio and recorded the students' stories - then presented students with a CD of their recorded story!I love this profession and look forward to continued success.
I'm a graduate of Such A Voice Premier Master Program.
In the fall of 2012, I participated in a weekend workshop with the renowned Paul Alan Ruben of Tribeca Studios in New York.
Received a certificate with distinction from Emory University - coursera.org - for Introduction to Digital Sound Production.
I continue to participate in teleconferences to increase and educate myself further in this exciting profession.
In my teenage years, I participated in local theater.
As a teacher, I am always "on stage"!!! Recently, I traveled to Ethiopia and Central Asia to work with teachers instructing them in the techniques of teaching English to students of other languages.The clarity of my accent has been appreciated wherever I work.

I am extremely diligent about giving a client the best product possible, and as soon as it is needed. I have won awards in both my teaching career and community service. I have had leadership roles in both my teaching career with the focus of working with students of many different cultures in the US, Belgium, Africa, Asia, and the UK. Leadership in community service has mostly focused around my church, but I have a major leadership role in a local service organization. I am honest and professional in everything I do, and I love voice-over production!
