conversational, believable, warm, trustworthy
With a voice that's engaging, smart, warm, friendly, fun and trustworthy, Margo brings copy to life. A Baby Boomer who can sound younger or older (30s-60s), she's the neighbor next door, the business professional, the doctor or nurse, mother or grandmother...with attitudes also ranging from classy to sassy; corporate to caring...and always believable. Born and raised in Michigan, Margo is a long-time Los Angeles resident and has neutral American speech.

I'm a full-time voice actor and a former TV publicist and writer. At NBC and Nickelodeon, I honed communication and persuasion skills to help propel programs from "Cheers" to "Rugrats" to hit status. Not only are these skills valuable in interpreting and connecting with voiceover copy, I trained with top VO coaches in L.A. in the last decade and with excellent acting teachers back in college (University of Michigan). Currently I voice a wide array of radio and TV commercials, eLearning projects and web videos and appear on various production companies' rosters. I'm also an avid tap dancer.
