I have voiced training, and presentations for clients like McDonalds, GE, Ebay, Carpet One, Pfizer, Astra Zeneca, BMW, Johnson and Johnson, Nestle and many more! Kim has a dynamic female voice with a smooth, energetic tone. Her natural age range is 30-50 years and is highly versatile.

My Professional Voice Over Services Guarantee:

I will do everything in my power to make your job as smooth as possible. How?

* I provide you with your audio as quickly as I possibly can. That can sometimes mean an hour (or less) from the time we reach an agreement. I will never keep you waiting. That is a stress you won’t have to worry about when collaborating with me. I know your time is valuable – and that deadlines are tighter now than ever before.
* I communicate with you in a prompt and helpful manner. You will always be ‘in the loop”.
* I am available. I am a full time, professional voice over artist and this is all I do. I am constantly connected and easily reached via email or phone or the form on my website. I can sometimes return emails within minutes of them being sent. When working with me, you will not be left in the lurch.
* I edit my audio files before delivering them to you so that they are clean and error-free, and then provide them to you in whatever format you prefer
* I maintain a professional studio environment with a 4x4 sound treated booth and broadcast quality equipment (Rode nT1A).
* If needed, I provide ipDTL, or an ipDTL bridge to ISDN at no cost to you.
* Two small edits of your project (a sentence or two changed, here or there) within the first 10 business days of delivery of your final audio, are included with my pricing. I will send a copy of my Revisions Policy PDF so that things are clear – but if there are ever errors that are my fault, I will certainly make sure to correct them at no charge – and as quickly as possible.
* I keep up to date on all the current voice over trends. I know what’s popular and I know how to advise you on your project, depending on what you’re hoping to accomplish (if you want that advice).
* I am continually learning more about my craft. I work with the best coaches, both inside my industry and outside of it, in order to be a leader in my field – so that I can help you tell your story better.
And lastly, but certainly not least:
* I CARE. Maybe this goes without saying, but I’m going to say it anyway. ;) Your project means as much to me as it does to you. I will deliver outstanding audio to you, in precisely the tone you were after so that I can put the premium icing on your project cake. It’s what I love to do.

Thank you for hiring a professional voice over artist.
It’s worth it.

“We worked with Kim on a voice over project in September 2007 and we were incredibly impressed. She replied to our RFP very promptly, quickly sent us a customized demo of her work & once we signed off, she completed the project within a couple of hours. We will certainly turn to her for any of our future voice over needs.”
