CUSTOMER SERVICE-
My purpose is for you to be so outrageously happy with my work that you'll gladly come back to me time and time again for your voiceover needs. Excellent customer service is my number one priority at all times - just ask any one of my satisfied clients. I will work with you to give you exactly what you want and go the extra mile. In fact, a client of mine recently decided to pay me more than we agreed, because he was so thrilled with my work. Let me do that for you!

BILINGUAL, EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONAL VOICE ACTOR & SINGER-

-5+ years as freelance voice talent
-Award-winning singer (30 Million homes across the Canada and the USA).

RELATABLE, VERSATILE VOICE-
I have a sophisticated yet relatable, powerful, medium female voice with a generic Mid-Atlantic American accent. My voice is strong but versatile, and I can ably perform a range of tones and inflections from sassy young adult to smooth, middle aged professional.

My "money" spot is what I call my Zoey Deschanel inspired voice - quirky, sexy, Millenial-sounding - but I'm also the warm and bubbly relatable girl-next-door, or the confident female professional. I used to work in sales and marketing for 3 years and brought in over $3M in revenue for the company - giving me real world experience as a professional in the corporate world.

My range is reflected in my clients - from Hustler Hollywood (sexy) to Rogers (smooth, corporate) to Suddenlink Internet (friendly) to the Florida Hospital Obesity Medicine and Surgery Institute (medical video).

Whether you are producing a commercial, a documentary, an internet release, a product demo, a corporate piece for use internally or with clients, or even your company's automated telephone attendant, I have the experience and versatility to bring your script to life.

I have been a voice professional for over 5 years. You have heard me on radio and television throughout the USA and Canada, on the voicemail/IVR systems of companies across North America, on YouTube, and even on dictionary word definitions.
