Girl Next Door, Playful, Bright, Character Voices
Whether you're looking for straightforward, bright, quirky, hard or soft sell - I can give it to you. I can sound like a smooth-talking announcer, or your nasally-challenged neighbor Bev (you know, the one who always stops to chat right when you have something more important to do). Give me a try!

My Voice Experience
My voice experience starts with an elementary school and a stage...and pretty much keeps going from there. I've been involved with theater, choir and pit band-based music (I play flute and bass) off and on since I was eight. I have plenty of pro experience as both an on-air and voice-over announcer, but my main gig for over eight years has been producing all of those voice-overs into commercials. I can give you the whole package!
