My Training

I earned my bachelor's at University of Texas at Austin, education-psychology undergraduate studies; master's at the George Washington University of Washington, D.C. in adult education administration with focus on Human Resources Management and Organizational Development.
As an undergrad, I conducted news on-street interviews and attended public meetings on behalf of DAILY TEXAN; read news on KLBJ/CBS affiliate; free-lance community journalist in education and public service for the Austin-American Statesman [a Cox publication].
I would really like to record books for all ages, read news on radio and television; read parts for movies/dvds and documentaries [as done in South-By-SouthWest 2005] and travel wherever while learning different dialects to speak other languages more fluently. My passport's ready!

My Studio Equipment

i have a laptop and a camera, rarely used to communicate but would like to learn how to use it better.
LOGIC bought in 2007 with a project designed to help sales professionals present info with less travel.

Additional Skills

I sing a great variety of music with the choir at my church and I have been among singers with the Austin Civic Chorus. I started appreciating choral reading in high school with the forensics club; I enjoy reading to patients and children; I like chat-lines for character changes. I have been a presenter for 12 years with a state agency as employee compliance instructor.
