Experience

Pam has been fortunate to be MCI's English operator voice since 1993 on various telecom products (including 1-800-COLLECT, prepaid cards, calling cards, voice mail and more). Some of them continue on in Verizon's name since Verizon acquired MCI in 2006. Pam has learned a lot about the unique nature of voice response and audio on hold.

Although Pam's voice can be heard around the world daily through these operator services products such as MCI's/Verizon Business's "The Neighborhood" Message Center (voice mail), Pam's voice is now available in your "neighborhood" via FTP and MP3 from her home studio.

She is also available to record in the Washington, D.C. area (encompassing Maryland and Northern Virginia).

"I speak the way I'd want to hear someone speaking to me at the other end -- kind, professional, and pleasant," says Pam about the approach she takes to recording as an official “operator voice”.

Before her lengthy experience with Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems, Pam was a familiar voice to listeners of four CCM-formatted radio stations in the Baltimore / Washington, D.C. area. For ten years, Pam honed her personable delivery as an afternoon drive announcer, co-host of Musically Speaking, newsreader, and spokesperson. Pam is a graduate of the University of Maryland with a degree in Radio, Television & Film.

Pam’s in-home studio with quality audio components offers the capability to record studio-quality work directly to the computer. The digital audio workstation studio allows Pam to upload voice files to her website in order to facilitate client downloads. Secure password protection is available. Pam looks forward to the opportunity to add her warm and friendly voice to your next project.
