Debbie also found tenure as an actor with a decade of service to a comedy improv group, performing live interactive theatre, and honing her skills in thinking “off the page”.With a lifetime as an actor, and over 20 years behind a microphone, voicing literally thousands of scripts for hundreds of satisfied clients, her customers have come to expect professional, dynamic, top quality delivery from this seasoned veteran. Debbie uses her warm, friendly style to voice everything from online narrations to Disney parkwide announcements to national television and radio campaigns. She has worked with scores of well-known clients including BMW, Hasbro, Microsoft, TimeWarner, AT&T and HBO, seamlessly shifting between the conversational, the humorous and the dramatic. She has trained diligently with respected experts in the field including Kalmenson & Kalmenson, Voicecaster, Marc Cashman, Joanie Gerber and Carroll Day Kimbel.Not only will she deliver exactly what you need, in record time, she’ll make sure everyone has a good time in the process.

We really appreciate the quick turn-around.
Debbie's quality of work as well as work ethic have been superb.

Awesome work! Thank you, these sound perfect and thanks for supplying several different speeds and tones.
Wow, Thanks Debbie!!Device Pharm
Just also to let you know, the client was very pleased with the VO on the recent Surgin DSS Device animation project.
Debbie was immediately proactive to our email inquiry.. From helping us get a sample read of a script within hours, to several takes to choose from for the finished VO in less than 48 hours! I normally don't have that short of a time to produce any recoded project, but between her and the studio, they helped us deliver VO for a finished TV spot in record time. I am very grateful for her talent and professionalism and I am delighted to offer a very enthusiastic recommendation. In a word... remarkable!Orange County, CA Ad Agency
I work in a call center, and literally found Debbie on a random site offering a host of VO talent, to work on our IVR prompts. it was one of my best 'finds.' I interviewed the best from that site, and Debbie jumped out as the person we wanted our clients to hear everytime they call in. her prices are fantastic and she has become a true partner for our business. She is superb in all facits of customer service. Debbie's quality, speed of delivery, and professionalism is above the rest. She is always willing to go the extra mile, or ask great questions that i might have overlooked. having a partner that will review your scripts instead of just recording and assuming you are perfect is awesome. that is a great attribute when you conduct all business via email in separates states! Distance is nothing since debbie is very response oriented and never hesitates to jump on the phone and figure out the small stuff. Although im sure we are a small part of her 'book' of clients, i always feel like we are her top priority! Being in a service business ourselves, we often have fast deadlines that appear out of nowhere, and Debbie always works with our schedule and has never once mentioned a time constraint. thats all the business. But I cannot exclude the fact that she sounds Great! I get compliments on her talent from callers... and a few recognize her from her other work. really puts a professional glossy cover on our IVRs! thank you Debbie for all your hard work! truly appreciated!!CWB
I've worked with Debbie for over twenty years and she continues to be the consummate professional: an excellent voice, wonderful to work with, creative, always open to suggestions, and always prepared for every session.PSI
