Highlights

I have a smart, reassuring, friendly voice that lends itself well to online and audio instruction. Corporate and documentary clients will find my voice professional, trustworthy, and expert.

As the mother of three young children in whose classrooms I regularly volunteer, my young audiences can attest to the warmth and motherly "mommy-ness" of my reads for children.

Experience

I have trained in voice over with Edge Studio (Washington, DC) since May 2009. In addition, I have over a decade of experience using my voice professionally as a corporate trainer and public speaker. As in voice over, success in those capacities demands that the speaker a)know her audience and their expectations; and then b)convey the message in a way that strikes a familiar emotional and/or logical chord with listeners.

I earned an MBA from Johns Hopkins University in 2005. A degree that I pursued while working for a Washington, DC trade organization where I developed and deployed corporate training and managed and mined an organization-wide database. After completing my degree, I worked in public relations and marketing in Phoenix where my clients included technology and wellness companies. Besides training, my public speaking experiences include delivering corporate presentations, reading and improvising children's stories, and -- beginning in January 2010 -- volunteering as a planetarium teacher for local kindergarteners.

An information junkie, I consume large quantities of public radio, web-based news, and old-fashioned newspapers daily. I have been an inveterate journal-keeper since receiving a diary on my ninth birthday.
