Service Description

I am accustomed to doing accurate one-take, often live reads. My Wellesley College education pays off: I'm a quick study for your complicated academic texts, including scientific terms. I am accustomed to pronouncing names and terms in many languages, and will not be daunted by any such challenges. In fact, I will delight in them! An audience's ear is my favorite stage, and I am accomplished performer in this venue.
