My Voice Experience

Having studied Voice and Theater in college, I began my 30 year career in V.O. work as the voice of a local amusement park on their narrated rides. As a singer and actress, knowing how to breath, enunciate, and project, has been quite beneficial to my V.O. Career. Since that time, I have worked with many local, Philadelphia, Harrisburg, and New Jersey studios, and have voiced many commercials, both locally and regionally, now even nationally, for everything from amusement parks (Busch Gardens Williamsburg), to department stores (Bon Ton - Strawbridge and Clothier), food stores (Stauffers, Giant/Martin/Topps food stores), Health Systems (PinnacleHealth, Jefferson University Hospital, Reading Hospital). More recently, I have been the Narrator in many e-learning projects for large (and small) pharmaceutical companies (Wyeth,AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Hoffman-La Roche, Novartis, GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi-Aventis, Merck, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Takeda, Genentech, Novo-Nordisk) for pharma training, and continuing medical education for Doctors and Medical professionals. I also have been a 'guest host' on QVC for the past 6 years, and was employed by QVC as Voice Over talent for their on air promos and advertising.

My Studio Equipment

TASCAM Interface recording equipment. Shure SM58 microphone. Can record at home, convert to Mp3 files, and send via email, as well as via FTP. Access to local recording studio who are able to transfer sound files in many ways, and have phone patch capabilities. They can also add music, sfx, and edit.

Additional Skills

I'm versatile, and take direction well. My composition skills/editing are excellent, and, if asked, I often assist in adjusting copy to make it more readable(and understandable). I take an interest is the subject matter, and want to sound like I am knowledgeable about it- credibility is a great factor. Although I specialize in medical/pharma narrations with medical terms and technical jargon, I can read commercial character lines with expression and credibility as well. I can be a mom, best friend, next door neighbor, senior, professional, doctor, lawyer, nurse or teacher.
Also, as a professional,it is my goal to do my job efficiently and effectively, and will have fun with you as well. With my background in Theater, Acting, Performing, and on-camera sales, I am engaging, energetic, and expressive, and can make even the dryest narration easy to listen to and understandable. Give me a try!
