As a trained radio producer, director, and audio editor, I deliver script with the final product in mind.
My voice is fluid and concise.
My greatest skill is the ability to capture every intended inflection, even at a rapid pace.
I have an unwavering respect for language. My fast reading comprehension is a result of years of practice and experience, often in live-on-air situations.

I write this letter as a reference in support of an employment application by Ashta Cormier of Nanaimo.
Ashta has worked with me on a weekly basis, since early summer of 2010, in co-presenting the community radio program People First Radio. The program is a partnership between Columbian Centre Society and Radio Malaspina Society, both of Nanaimo, B.C. Topics include issues related to health and wellness, and more specifically have also focused on mental illness, disability, and personal and community responses to those challenges.
Ashta is a warm, genuine, and supportive individual. She has interacted with a wide range of individuals in conjunction with the delivery of our weekly live radio broadcast. Guests have included people in recovery from mental illness, addiction, and homelessness, as well as people with disabilities who are working toward achieving employment and independence. We have also interviewed people who work in organizations that serve others.
Ashta is a genuine professional with an interest in others. She follows through on her commitments, maintains a high standard of practice, and is unswervingly positive and supportive.
I would highly recommend her for employment based upon my experiences working with her. Please feel free to contact me if you wish to discuss further.
