What my clients say about me:
"She delivered the voice work two days before deadline! She gave two quality samples to choose from. I love her sound and how she brought life to the ad. I will work with her again."
Brett Capiau, Appletree Medical Group

"Just wanted to say that your recording is wonderful and your interpretation is perfect. I like it so much! :) You got every tone and every pause right. I could not imagine that it could come out so beautifully! You are natural, warm, happy, reassurant and intimate, exactly how I think you are also as a person in real life and how I also imagined HitMyDay to be. So I think the fit is just amazing."

Once the script was sent she delivered the voice work two days before deadline! She gave two quality samples to choose from. I love her sound and how she brought life to the ad. I will work with her again.

I am so pleased to have found Laurie. She is a stellar talent, and just so pleasant to work with. Quick turnaround, understands NUANCE and direction! I'm skipping straight to her the next time I need a sensitive, flexible female voice that sounds HUMAN, and can act, instead of reading copy like an automaton. Top notch!
