I am a longtime listener of Laurie Weaver's podcast and am a big fan of her authentic and heartfelt persona as well as the sweet sound of her voice. When one of the organizations I work with needed some voiceover work for an educational iPad app, I contacted Laurie right away to send us a demo. She was utterly responsive and professional, sending us an mp3 with four cues in a matter of a couple of hours! She has a great voice and a wonderful work ethic and I highly recommend her.Sandy Seufert, Educational Arts Consultant
