Michele Haines

Quirky, Warm, Next Door, Motherly, Wacky, Seductive

Voice Description

Michele is often described as a cross between Zooey Deschanel, Kristen Wiig and Lucielle Ball. Her career began as a teenage radio disc jockey and she has been sharpening her characters on the improv stage since 2008. Coaches and clients are very impressed by the versatility of her voice. Her range includes the charming motherly mom; sweet, excitable girl; gruff boy bully and everything in between. She takes direction well and offers a quick turn-around time.
