Newcastle upon Tyne, Northumberland, GB
Heather was born and bred in the 'dark satanic mills' area of Keighley West Yorkshire UK.
Although she has lived in various other parts of the country over the years which has softened those familiar 'Tyke' tones she can easily drop back into the recognised Broad Yorkshire from this part of the world.
Her voice has a young, natural and clear quality.
Heather has been a bookworm from a very young age and loves to express herself through the spoken word. She is just as much at ease evoking emotion through the characters in a book as she is the descriptive narration. This would very much make her an ideal choice for Audiobooks.
As a very young child she would line her dolls and bears up on her bed to listen to her reading the book of the moment. Later at primary school she recalls always being the first with her hand up to read out loud in class. This became a natural progression into acting where in her younger years Heather gained experience on stage in pantomime, comedy, drama and musicals, later deciding to make the move into Film and TV.
Heather is currently based in Newcastle upon Tyne UK

Heather is a professionally trained Film & TV actor since 2012 having come late to the industry. That said, she has since appeared professionally in TV Soaps and Dramas, Independent Films and Regional Commercials, where she has received excellent feedback on all her work.
Heather prides herself on being punctual, friendly and above all professional in her approach to each project.
Although new to the Voice Over world she has been fortunate to train with VO Focus with The Voiceover Gallery Manchester in 2015 who also rekindled her love of writing which currently is aimed at short and unique narrations for Voice Overs. This is something she would be interested in pursuing either on behalf of or alongside interested parties.
Having previously had careers in lower management in both the public and private sectors Heather knows how important it is for businesses to operate to tight schedules, meet important deadlines and keep within set budgets. This is why she can see and appreciate the bigger picture when working as part of a team.
Having worked for Barclays Bank where she was a classroom instructor at their Training Centre, she has excellent knowledge of the business background and terminology in this area which makes her an ideal choice for business voice overs. Likewise, eight years experience with Northumbria Police Force in various departments lends a versatility which could be used in documentaries.
