"Completely Awesome. Great recording. Great price. She even re-recorded because of a typo in the script that was OUR fault. She could not have been easier and/or better to work with." (Telephone Messaging)(ranked 5 out of 5 stars)

Trace Anderson, Blue Utopia


"Laurie is a voiceover artist who doesn’t shrink from a challenge. She has recorded a wide range of subject matter for us and always performs in a capable, professional manner. She never gives just a straight read, or lapses into the over dramatic. She respects the theme of the material and gives a thoughtful presentation with personality and in a pleasant voice that makes listening both compelling and enjoyable. Her voice is warm, relaxed, and always on the mark. I strongly recommend this reader for any narration project." (Educational Narration)
