Voice Description

Though my voice is most noted for it's warmth and richness, having been an actress for over 30 years, I am a chameleon. I am not afraid of any challenge you might have to offer. I can be anything from a cooing baby to the most frightening "Kate" (Taming of the Shrew), to a goofy "Lucy". Or, I can be the sultry seller of vacation dreams, the hard selling business woman, the inquisitive naturalist, the loving mother.

My Voice Experience

After being a stage and film actress for over 30 years, I began in voice by auditioning for, and being accepted into the roster of, a local animation studio. Since that time, I have attended many, many voice-over workshops. My instructors have included Bill Holmes, Joyce Castelanos, Debbie Munro, Julie Williams, Elaine Clarke, Bob Bergen, and Bettye Zoller-Seitz, to name but a few.

- have voiced poems for a collection to raise money for Haiti
- voiced a robot in a music video
- am the narrator of an online "radio" play about the future
- am the narrator of an online instruction manual teaching blind people how to use a popular software program
- am "Mother Brightly" in an Anime series
- volunteer for a "not-for-profit" group that records news stories for the blind and illiterate.

I love doing voice work. I am excited and energetic about this industry. I am hard working and dedicated and pride myself on my attention to detail, timeliness and professionalism.
