Mom, Sarcastic and Warm, Earthy, Trustworthy, Sexy
Trustworthy, deep and warm OR sexy with a touch of wry attitude for commercials, but also knowledgeable and confident for promos and in-house training videos. I'm your go-to girl for Mom voices that need a bit of edge...or your adenoidal boy-wonder, sultry squirrel or trash-talking redneck woman! Commercial and animation reels available - varied voices.
