Portland, Maine, US
I am a female voiceover talent who helps clients tell their unique stories and connect with audiences of every kind. I voice for local and regional broadcast clients, as well as for education and workplace eLearning projects. I also read for Fortune 500 companies from product explainers and training, to broadcast press releases.
Clients describe my work (and demeanor) as professional, confident, friendly and engaging.
Before pursuing voiceover full time, I worked in marketing communications. I have worked as a senior account manager for marketing and advertising agencies, and held leadership roles in corporate in-house communications departments. I bring a client's perspective to every voice session.
I was raised in New York City. My path to becoming a career voiceover actor has included stints in community and professional theater, as well as studio experience on both sides of the glass.

I began acting in local community theater in New York City at the tender age of five. I continued with acting training and performance all the way through college and beyond.
Voice training has come from real-life studio experience; as well as writing and producing broadcast material. I have been an active voice talent for more than 20 years.
My background is in marketing communications, and I bring that skill set to all voice sessions.
