honest, confident, inviting
I am a professional opera singer by trade--a mezzo-soprano--so I have a smooth, rich, expressive, resonant, and versatile voice. I have extensive diction training, can read with dramatic expression and accuracy, and can do everything from serious journalism to impersonations and improvised character voices.

My Voice Experience
I have mostly focused on my opera carreer up to this point, but my training in voice, diction, and acting have prepared me to make voice-over work a natural direction for me to move towards.
As an opera singer, I am frequently in a position of being a public speaker, and as character actress.
I am also a voice teacher, and have spent the past ten years focused entirely on the production and articulation of the human voice.
