My Voice Experience

I am currently in the process of recording a children's chapter books for the Washington Talking Books and Braille Library in Seattle, WA, as well as book review guide. These recordings will be used to assist blind library users access reading material that would otherwise be unavailable to them.

As an assistant at a martial arts studio in Wheaton, Maryland, I recorded the emergency telephone messages for closures and schedule changes from 1999-2003.

In the 1980's high school, I played a maid in "Annie", and was in the chorus for "Man of La Mancha," and "On the Town."

I have a BS in Nursing and worked in nursing for over 12 years from nursing homes, hospitals, corporate America, to home care/hospice. I try to stay current in the field via nursing periodicals and articles.

I have an MA in Public Administration with an emphasis on public health.

I directed a children's choir in Silver Spring, MD for about 10 year. I enjoy singing, playing acoustic and bass guitar, but have no formal training in music.
