"Frances is a director’s dream! She is the consummate professional who arrives prepared, on time, and ready to work. She takes direction well. She interpreted the scripted character and brought it to life, with minimal direction. She responds to situational challenges with suggestions that work. She is generous with those less talented and spontaneously helps them along. She is cheerful and fun to work with, and this makes a long production day, shorter. Her playful personality kept everyone engaged. I would definitely hire again."Matthew Clulow, Video Production
It has been my pleasure to direct Fran through several voice productions over the years. I can always count on her to deliver gold. Breathing life into the worst of lines, is one of her many uncanny abilities.3A Sound - Andrew Grant, Technical Director
Fran’s incredible voice range is shadowed only by her commitment to character, and the believability in every performance.
Over the years, she has definitely become one of the voice talents my clients ask for by name.
I look forward to working with Fran again in the very near future
