Voice Description

I've been called "One Take Traci" because I can read long, complicated scripts with very few pick-ups. Credible and strong for medical and industrial, warm and compassionate for commercials, serious and matter of fact for news-type reads. I can lean toward perky and silly, but not too far in that direction.
