My Voice Experience

Clients have included:
Intercontinental Hotel Groups, Armstrong Luxury Flooring, First Republic Bank, Myrbetriq, Lipozene, Austin Bank of East Texas, Goshen Hospital, Catholic Ministries Appeal, Perfect Pocket Billiards, South African Tourism, World Science Fair, Fahlgreen University, American Heiress - NYTimes Bestseller book trailer, Tracklib, Grain Processing Center, etc .

I was the voice of the translator for History Channel's Hitler's Eastern Front series,
narrated Fangoria's documentary on Scream Queen Brinke Stevens and Beach Body's Slim in 6 informmercial for US, UK and Canadian audiences and provided the voice of Philharmonica Beasley - Headmistress for the Children's series "The School at the end of the Street."

I've done radio campaigns, testimonials (for banks, Universities and pharmaceutical companies), social apps, phone systems, web videos and webcasts and straight narrations.

People stop me on the street or on the phone and say how much they like my voice, no one can tell where I'm from. Having jettisoned my New England accent with coaching, I have no tell-tale regional accent. I have a Master's Degree in International Relations and have a real facility for languages, accents and industry jargon so pharma ads and sci-fi lingo are no problem. I have a natural warmth from my years as a disk jockey.

My voice can sound in it's 20s, 30s, 40s or 50s, even 60s. I have an authoritative, clear and present voice lending gravitas to banking or investment ads. I also have a very fun side and quick sense of humor so snarky, sexy and/or sarcastic are no problem.

I can be the mom that's been around the block, the warm doctor delivering news you weren't expecting, the sexy noir siren or your best friend telling you about a product you've got to try.

I lived and worked in the UK so that accent is no problem, I'm quite good at it. Although I got rid of my Boston accent years ago although I can recall it on demand.
