My Voice Experience

For the past few years, professionals in the film industry in Vancouver have been telling Kaitlin she should get into voice over work. To her surprise, she loved it when she had her first experience recording voices for background characters in a movie. From there, she was hooked and moved onto taking her first class with Alistair Abell, at On the Mic Voice Over Training.

She has been told she has a natural knack for voice work, and with her acting experience, she is able to quickly get where she needs to be in the studio.

Kaitlin is branching out and transitioning from on camera acting to studio recording voice over work and with that she brings many years of experience.
