Voice Description

I am friendly, upbeat and warm for training and e-learning programs. I can pump some life into a dry presentation when needed. I am smart, experienced and professional and can be the voice of your hospital, your company or product. I have a sense of humor and playfulness for commercials, talking to other moms, or promoting your product. I can connect with your copy for a compassionate, heartfelt read whether a commercial, narration or promo. I am good with difficult pronunciations and have recorded hundreds of medical videos. In politics I have been the voice for many campaigns from congressional to Presidential, funny spots to serious & tough and everything in between.
