Kim is EXCELLENT at her craft. She recorded two variations of the script, each of which had a different tonality and energy. She was very easy to work with, and went a step beyond to get me the VO within 12 hours, so that my production schedule didn't get slowed down. Very nice indeed. I will 100% use her voice again and again.
