Clear, educated, energetic, girl next door
As a former journalist I enunciate well with a clear, crisp, authoritative delivery, impeccable timing and a solid cold-read skill set. The read style is authentic but able to sound youthful or mature depending on the tone of the spot. Can easily transition to sexy, flirty, and a little husky for adult content reads for book or video game narrative. Able to deliver a distinct separation in vocal personality for multi-part reads such as book narrative or video game character.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
Broad North-American regional dialects, ranging from a flat mid-western Kansan accent, to a campy Texas drawl, to a California valley girl living it up in the sun. I have performed an over the top Irish brogue for a pub.
My Voice Experience
As a traffic reporter for Citadel (now Cumulus) Broadcasting in Albuquerque NM for nearly 10 years, I was able to develop different styles and a range of personalities for reports, DJ banter, interaction and voicing commercials for an 8 station cluster in a medium market. I am not shy about performing and I am known for quick and witty repartee.
In addition to live commercial reads in each of traffic reports each day I would record :15, :30, and :60 second commercials, some times 3 or 4 in a week in many different styles, so the variety of roles I can play is good.
I have been very popular with clients who require a very professional approach to medical and technological reads. I am also a freelance writer and would most like to do narrative for documentary projects or audio book reads.
In addition to my on-air work, I was the producer for a weekend talk radio program for nearly two years. I left radio a few years ago, but have stayed involved by volunteering at a local Country and Western Radio station.
I have continued performing in commercials since 1999, but have taken it to the next level and now write and produce PSA's for local non-profit agencies that I support.
My Studio Equipment
I have access to a professional studio at the radio station that I volunteer at as well as working from my home studio - which has been outfitted with professional equipment. I am currently using Audacity for editing but am familiar with "Cool Edit Pro". I use a Blue Yeti condenser microphone in my home studio.
Over the past 15 years, I have been responsible for training and coaching a number of new traffic reporters for broadcast quality performances. I have stayed informed in my craft and am not afraid of studying. I practice cold reads and reading aloud every day. My current work requires me to give regular presentations to large groups of business professionals and I am not intimidated by performing in front of an audience. In addition to my radio career I have a background of volunteer work including training phone bank workers for telethons.
