Laya was a true pro and an absolute delight to work with. Our team had some very specific requirements for tonality and emphasis on specific words, which Laya took in stride and knocked it out of the park for our project. Could not recommend her more!

Laya is my go-to voice-over talent with the ability to make my technically complex scripts sound more like a conversation than a lecture.

We’ve used Laya as our go-to talent for a range of Fortune 100 clients. She’s a pro in every sense—on time, offers a variety of reads, takes direction well, our clients love her and her passion for what she does is evident in every session. I wish everyone we booked were as easy to work with as Laya! — Dana Hazels Seith, Copy Lead
