My Voice Experience

I was trained in Nottingham, England, as a professional telephonist, where I learned the importance of having a clear, believable and honest voice as my voice was very often the 'First Impression' of my company that a potential customer would hear. I worked for prestigious companies including Heinz UK, Olivetti UK and car dealerships including Jaguar, Ford and British Leyland.

My American husband says that the first time 'Katrina' hit Florida was in 1989, when I came to the USA. From the moment I landed until this very day I am told almost every day what an engaging and intriguing voice I have. People follow me around the grocery store just to hear me speak!!

I realized that I have a gift and I must use it!! After extensive training by my coach and nationally known voice over talent, Ben Marney of Such a Voice, I knew that this was what I was meant to do!!

My Training

I was professionally trained in telephony, communications and customer liaison. I have been running my own businesses for over 30 years and have learned many of my 'voice talents' from dealing with the public, liaising with my customers and the 'University of Life'!!

I have taken extensive voice over training from nationally renown voice over talent, Ben Marney of Such a Voice. I am trained to operate an on site recording studio and to edit and produce finished takes using Audacity.
