If I had to describe Darby in just a few words it'd be easy. Renaissance woman. In the ten years or so I've known Darby, she's continually surprised me with her dedication, creativity, insight and easy demeanor. Truly a pleasure to work with, she is equally adept at writing, acting (one of the most popular voice talents on the planet) and creative brainstorming. She's great in front of clients as well as in the office. She's graceful under pressure and her deliverables are always top notch.Gary Clayton, Chief Creative Officer - Nuance Communications
Darby is hands down the best female voice talent I've worked with. She is always professional, prepared and her read style makes for the smoothest sessions.David Urrutia, Producer/Engineer/Sound Designer, Facebook
She naturally self-directs and is great at picking up even the slightest issue with her reads. She can knock out complex words on the fly generally without needing any help from the director.
She's got an easy going vibe and a fun edge to her personality. I would be so lucky to work with talent like her on every project

Because of her professionalism, talent, consistency and flexibility she has become one of the most well known voices in the industry. Our group has consistently benefitted from Darby’s ability and will continue to so in the future.Jeff Hoffman, Audio Producer, Microsoft
Darby is a top notch voice talent and an all around amazing person. I've known Darby for over 9 years, and I'm still amazed by the many facets of her talent. She is a consummate professional and excels at her craft, but the best thing about Darby is her easy going style and her affable personality. She is a fun person to work with. Combine that with her creativity and out of box approach to problem solving, you couldn't ask for a better person to work with.Emrys Kim, Production Coordinator, Tellme Networks, A Microsoft Subsidiary
