Warm - Clear - Engaging - Inspiring - Positive ------ 5 Star Voice Actor

FAVORITE me so I'm only a click away!

Fun and Spunky to warm and soothing...I offer expressive reads and can provide a wide variety of interpretations. I'm your soccer mom, the nurse at your doctor's office, and that helpful lady from HR.

I'm a Full Time Voice Talent, recording voice overs since 1996, and have the added benefit of having worked on your side of the glass: voice casting; coaching talent; engineering; editing. That experience means I respect the process and everyone's roles.
