With a background in theatre and corporate shows, Gretchen is very aware of the need to balance a quality product with a fast, cost-effective turnaround. She is self-directed, fluid with words, and unafraid of technical vocabulary, or international names and phrases. That said, she enjoys being directed by producers and directors. From 1976 to 1996, Gretchen worked in professional theatres all over the US; and in 1996 she went freelance in the corporate theatre world. She has studied French, German and Italian languages; and trained with Elaine Clark at her VoiceOne Studio in San Francisco. She adds all these skills to a 16-bit, 44.1K mono read -- and delivers your message with clarity, sensitivity, on time, and 'As you like it'.
