Girl next door, warm and friendly
With corporate clients including Best Buy, HealthPartners, and General Mills, I am able to project a warm and caring, yet authoritative persona for young mom or healthcare professional roles, or perform more quirky and fun characters for more high-energy commercial work. For narrations, I am able to give a warm and conversational read, and with seven years of experience working at the U of M Medical School, I am very comfortable with highly technical language for patient or doctor-focused narration.
