Highlights

I have favorites!!! Due to operator error (lol) I accidentally deleted the favorites in my stats when I updated my demo. Please know I'm not a newbie and people do love my work! Most notably, Ray Parisi, Executive Producer, CNBC! Whoohooo!!!

My agents, Ellen Quinn - Agent 99 Voice Talent, and Diane Schorsch - Play Talent would tell you that I go above and beyond in a session to ensure their client gets exactly what they want. I don't nit pick about time ... if the session goes over by a little bit, I don't demand more money. If they want to change the script a bit during the session, I just roll with it. If they want to hear a line 17 different ways, not a problem. It's just what we do to make sure our clients have that 'boutique experience' that makes them keep coming back time and time again. They might not even know why they come back, they just know they feel good when working with us and it's an experience they want to repeat over and over again.

My voice has been heard on every thing from Papa Murphy's radio ads to St Joseph Health System television ads to Dale Carnegie on hold and countless other projects including names like: AAA, Boeing, Hunter Douglas, Vetco, MediCare, Edward Jones, Carrier, Consumer Cellular ... and the list goes on.

Accidentally perfect! My career was born quite by accident and morphed into the perfect job for me. Back in the day, I was asked to voice an IVR project which I loved doing. The company was so happy they asked me to voice their TV commercial and that was the beginning of the world of VO! That was eighteen years ago. Today I have voiced many a TV commercial, radio, eLearning, audiobooks and more. I have a broadcast quality studio complete with Source Connect and Skype. My voice is clean with an edgy, unique feel. And I have a wide range from sensuous to mom and anything in between. It has been said I am well suited for commercials, promos, messaging, narration, documentaries and much more.

Experience

I've been doing VO for 18 years and love my job! Went full time in 2012 and life is GRAND!!!

My voice coach says: I have a beautiful voice. Strong. Yet beautiful. The first thing she commented on … "Wow! You are SO directable!" Gotta love that. She also says that I have a great range. You will be pleased with my commercials, narrations, promo's, telephone greetings, e-learning and character work.

If you live in the Seattle or Portland markets you may have heard my voice on Papa Murphy's radio ads. In the Portland / Vancouver metro area, you may have heard my voice on both radio and TV for Pacific Lifestyle Homes and Trinity Carpet.

Here are some brands that have hired me to represent them:

Petco
AAA
Hunter Douglas
Boeing
Dale Carnegie
Convergent Health Systems
Health Republic Insurance Company
US Agencies Credit Union
Emergency Evacuation System
Adhoc
St Joe's Heathcare Systems
Cassida Corp
And many many many more!!!

We have used Donna to record our phone system messages for a number of years. She updates our office hours, holiday closings and marketing messages in a timely and professional manner. We now have one professional voice that is heard across all of our phone system prompts.

I'd highly recommend Donna for her timeliness, quality, professionalism and value. Jim L.
