Karen is one of the great female voice over actors who can consistently deliver excellent work day in and day out. The ease of emailing over scripts and obtaining high quality recordings in a matter of days (sometimes hours) is a huge asset. Her creative range can be applied across various voices and tones. If you need female voice over talent you should contact Karen."

Karen did a great job voicing "Mrs. Claus" for us for our holiday spot for Red Sox. Would definitely work with her again, her recording was turned around quickly and she had a great professional demeanor and perfect voice for our spot. Thanks Karen!!!
