Rachel McDowell

Everyone's Favorite Friend and Neighbor

Voice Description

I have a friendlyand familiar voice print. A Director once described my voice as the trusted (maybe meddling) next-door neighbor. I am a professional stand up comedian, enjoy character work and when called for, can highlight comedic aspects of a script. I spent 11 years in the tech industry and currently am the voice of several corporate videos. The CEO of the Video Production Company said I was their most popular female talent. My voice can naturally be fun and bubbly as well as the other side of the spectrum, professional and authoritative.
