Testimonials

The character interpretation was dead on. The narration was exactly what I was looking for. With minimal direction I got what I needed quickly. Benita was incredibly responsive and professional. (PC)

Edward Jones

Benita was phenomenal. Her presence was authoritative and embracing at the same time. She lent an air of authenticity that made our Diversity Project come to life. (JRM - Industrial Producer and Academy Award Nominee)
