My Voice Experience
Once upon a time, I wanted to grow up to become an actress and a singer. In my teen years, I joined the drama club and performed in school plays and talent shows. "A natural" everyone said, but after my mother died from cancer when I was very young, my dreams of acting were put on hold and I went to work for "the phone company". My first job at PT&T (Pacific Telephone & Telegraphy) was as a '411' operator ("For what city please?" and.. "The number is...")); I used my voice to answer and provide phone numbers to approximately 2000 people every day, for about 20 seconds each time. I worked in that job for 3 years, and work for the phone company for a total for 38.5 years. I gained immeasurable experience using my voice to communicate effectively and to make people laugh. As soon as I knew I was retiring (at the end of 2013), I signed up for VO classes, with various teachers, in Orange County and in L.A. County, and now - after 4 years of training - I am ready to audition for you! Be part of my story! I'm ready to lend my voice to your Commercial, Narration or Animation project!

Relationships -- Many life experiences (romance, friendship, sibling rivalry, etc.) to bring your copy to life
Animals/Pets -- As a life long pet owner, for all copy/scripts related to pets (e.g. cats, dogs, horses, bunnies, even snakes), I can infuse your copy with sincerity, warmth and reality.
Singing - Pleasant voice. Not a powerhouse, but good enough for jingles.
Motherhood -- I excel at being "Mom" - Warm, helpful, concerned, supportive, compassionate, funny. When it comes to being "Mom" (or grandma), I'm an expert.
Work history - Decades working for AT&T has resulted in my having a very pleasant, natural voice, excelling at communicating complex technical terminology and ideas, as well as lightening the mood as needed with an uplifting, happy voice. I have the perfect voice for Industrials related to Telecommunications, Information Technologies, Network Operations, and Engineering.
