My Voice Experience

Jill has worked as an on-air talent in radio for the past 20 years, doing hundreds of :30 and :60 commercials, tag, and promos. She has also done jingles, industrial narration, and voicemail recordings. In high school she was involved with drama, choir, and debate.

My Training

She has both acted and directed for the stage, and has been a classroom English teacher for the past 10 years--lots of language analysis there, in addition to "performing" in front of an audience every day! As part of her teaching duties, she is also an advisor for the school newspaper, and has done newscasting and traffic as part of her radio gig.

My Studio Equipment

Additional Skills

As an English teacher, she is adept at reading out loud from difficult texts and making it sound natural. She is also a reader for state Academic Bowl tournaments and does an awesome Ethel Merman impression :-)
