Voice Description

My clients tell me they love the versatility and range of my voice. My voice has been described as sincere, honest, fun, flirty, chic, professional, rich and sultry.

Here is what the pros are saying:

“Melissa is one of those rare finds in the voice over business. Being an incredibly gifted singer serves her extremely well in the art of range, character and nuance. She’s ‘voice putty’ in your hands.”

Tim Underwood, Owner

Professionally satisfied,
