youthful, energetic, sensual, warm, peaceful
My voice has been used for authoritative and powerful narration, fun and spunky radio spots, and can be used as soothing for professional corporate training recordings. My voice can inflect flirtation for advertising and character spots. At my first paying voice over job, I was compared to "a young Katherine Hepburn".

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
I'm from the South, so I can give an over-the-top Southern Belle as well as a toned down soft faintly country sound. I mimic my grandfather from up North and can portray a Wisconsin or Minnesota sound. One of my favorite impersonations is a bored, bourgeois valley girl or a child with a pronounced lisp.
My Voice Experience
In high school, I was a telephone operator for Target. People who knew me always laughed when they overheard me answer the phone because they said I sounded nothing like my normal speaking voice. "You sound so professional!", they always said. Or made a joking reference that I should work for adult phone services. Later, I volunteered on-air at a local Top 40 radio station in Nashville, TN. I found out about an audition for a voice over spot for a national ad campaign. I didn't expect to get it but the director jumped out of the booth and said she loved my voice: "You're a young Katherine Hepburn! Do you know who she is?!", she exclaimed. She used me for three of their spots for radio and television commercials and I was hooked.
I began college seeking a Broadcast Journalism degree with Recording Industry (for music). I later switched to Business Management but my favorite classes were Public Speaking and Business Law. I have been a professional dancer and love all aspects of performing in front of people. I have also completed Comedy Improv courses and currently sing and dance in a show at a theme park.
My specific voice over education includes classes and one-on-one instruction from respected voice actors, Betteye Zoller and Joe Loesch.
My Studio Equipment
My set-up at home right now is pretty basic. Using my MacBook Pro, I record with a Samson USB condenser microphone into Audacity. I hope to grow my space and equipment with time, experience, practice, and advice. I regularly research what other people use and ask a lot of questions.
I'm a bit of a spelling and grammar nerd so I'm comfortable writing copy that can display conciseness, imagination, tone, and humor. I can also offer revision services.
