My Voice Experience

The comfort of my mother's lap and her soothing voice reading to me as a child is where my love and appreciation of the spoken word began. Then, my first grade teacher taught us how to read aloud "with color." Later in school, I was always chosen to be the narrator for school plays and classroom reading assignments.

As an adult, I have been an elementary teacher, a university instructor, a preacher, a teacher of public speaking, and a narrator for church music productions. I love to use my voice to help others.

One of the women in my class at church is going blind, so I recorded onto CDs the book we were studying for her to be able to listen to it at home. She loved it and was so appreciative of the extra effort.

My voice over career is just beginning, yet I believe that my grandchildren would be the first to say how much they love to listen to me read books to them.

My Training

I completed the voice acting training through VoiceCoaches in 2011.

I also have a graduate degree in communication which included some courses in oral interpretation and speech and preaching.

I sing in a church choir and have been the narrator for the annual Christmas productions.

I have also taught academic writing and public speaking on the college level.

I have earned degrees in early childhood education (BS), communication (MA), women's studies (MA), and higher education administration (EdD).

Additional Skills

I believe my training and gifts in teaching make me an excellent voice actor when it comes to teaching/training materials. I know how to emphasize certain points so they are memorable.

My experience in public relations, public speaking, teaching, and preaching have helped me gain a vast range of experience of how to communicate to others through the spoken word. I can write a message that will connect with an audience and I can deliver that message in a way that it is easily accessible to even the reluctant listener.

I have also served on a non-profit organization's board, so I understand the "low budget" needs of groups who want quality productions but simply can't afford the typical industry prices.

Payment Methods Accepted

• Personal checks, cashier's checks, or money orders in my local currency
• Wire transfers
