My voice is friendly, warm and inviting... the neighborhood Mom. Pitch is in the mid to low range and my age range is from 35 - 60. I'm told I sound like everybody's Mom. I grew up in the Miami Valley in Southwest Ohio and have no discernible dialect. My clients (past and present) include Fortune 500 companies: a global appliance manufacturer, credit unions and banks, videogame designers, non-fiction authors. I am an expert at handling the most difficult copy and making the content clear and easily understood for the listener. This includes all types of text and vocabularies from commercial to technical to medical. I have a wide range of character voices. My background is in performing arts and theatre direction. I am adept enough at Spanish and French for short sentences or paragraphs.
