Testimonials

"We were looking for a pleasant and professional narration for New West Home's business presentation. Laurie's voice recordings were absolutely perfect!" (Corporate Narration)

Reed Dickens, CEO / Founder of Outside Eyes (Former White House Assistant Press Secretary and regular contributor for CNN’s Larry King Live) & Bryan Hall, Outside Eyes Strategy Team

Outside Eyes

"Laurie is a voiceover artist who doesn’t shrink from a challenge. She has recorded a wide range of subject matter for us and always performs in a capable, professional manner. She never gives just a straight read, or lapses into the over dramatic. She respects the theme of the material and gives a thoughtful presentation with personality and in a pleasant voice that makes listening both compelling and enjoyable. Her voice is warm, relaxed, and always on the mark. I strongly recommend this reader for any narration project."
