Mabelene: Small-town Southern Drawl, never lived anywhere else, a bit on the thoughtful side, confident in who she is and what she says, but never rude. "Where do I work? Oh me, oh my! The best place on earth! Hog Heaven! Where warm food and warm service meets chilly customers with a heavenly order of hot ham on homemade biscuits, of course!"

Additional Skills

Being a certified sign language interpreter for almost 20 years, I've learned and mastered the ability to convey the voice, expressions, intent and feelings of my clients. From court settings to theatrical, from education to medical, with hearing and deaf clients from any age who are highly educated to those with no education, my experience has been vast.

Through all of my acting and voice trainings, I have been commended for my characterizations, expressions, deliveries as well as my ability to take direction well.
