My Voice Experience

My voice is recognizable to millions who watched me on television, heard my dozens of radio and TV commercials, or listened to the books I read for the Lighthouse for The Blind.

I started working in voiceover when I was eight, singing commercials for Dixie Maid Sugar. Since then I've been a spokesperson for hundreds of products, a few of which are Coca-Cola, American Gas, Excedrin, Palmolive Liquid, Noxzema, Pearl Drops Toothpaste, Weinhard Beer, Simple Simon Desserts, Marine West, Oil of Olay, and Blue Cross/Blue Shield.

My Voice123 demos display a bit of my range, from authoritative spokesperson to ditzy sex kitten and beyond.

My Training

For voiceover, I have studied with Johnny Heller, Paul Liberti, and Sean Allen Pratt, and I'm continuing my studies with David Lawrence at VO2GoGo.com in addition to being a graduate of Dan O'Day's ACX Master Class.

I studied theater acting in Los Angeles with Bobby Lewis, founder of the Actors Studio. In New York, I trained with Warren Robertson and with Gene Bua.

I studied singing with Don Pfost in New York and with Dr. Kristin Samuelson in New Orleans.

When I lived in Illinois, I was an adjunct professor at The College of DuPage near Chicago and taught voiceover to my acting students.
