Smart Best Friend, Sophisticated, Conversational
My voice has been described as "your best friend who KNOWS". Conversational, bright, playful, warm, engaging, sophisticated, natural; she plays the Mom, the Mistress, the Beauty Queen and the Girl Next Door. Just don't ask her to sing....unless you're looking for off key.
