Character voices, (Lily Tomlin, Gilda Radner, etc); elf, witch, carton characters); foreign accents-British (including Cockney), Eastern Indian, Irish, German; American dialects (Southern drawl, New York); children's voices, and imitations are my first loves. I'm equally at ease doing commercial/industrial work, and I'm extremely comfortable sounding smooth, convincing, warm, and sincere. I'm versatile, and feel very much at home whether doing characters or narrations, especially when reading to children. I do speak some Spanish, and I'm comfortable reading it.

As a Speech Therapist, I've had a comprehensive background in speech/language/voice. I'm very articulate, and my background and love of voices has served me well when approaching any voice-over project. I'm able to take direction. I would love to read children's books on tape, and use this skill whenever I get the chance!! I'm the president of the Board of Directors of my library system, serve on several other volunteer boards, and enjoy music, dance, theater, and antiques.
