I'm the soccer mom who GETS it. I'll tend to the bump on your head, but then ask you how in the hell this could have happened in the first place. I'm your target market. I'm your target demographic. I'm the gal to whom you're selling, so who better to voice it to others like me? (And, according to AdWeek, 96 percent of the influence in a purchase belongs to the ladies -- whose spending power is estimated to be $5 TRILLION! HELLO!!!)

In other words...conversational, believable, genuine, warm, caring, professional, girl-next-door, friendly, corporate, authoritative, educated, animated, ironic, get the drift.

Barbara was both professional and easy to work with, and I would definitely recommend her. He demo reading of the project material was excellent, and she took the time to give a detailed written introduction of herself as well. After her first recording, which was good already, the client requested a second version with a different set of directions. This she quickly turned around, and very accurately interpreted the new requirements as to the tone he was going for. The project (a PSA video concerning the importance of reading to children at an early age) required a voice reading that was warm, friendly and conversational in nature; all of which she conveyed in her recordings.

All in all a very good experience from start to finish.
