As well as a long career in television production, Sarah has spent many years providing professional voiceovers for international television and radio commercials, corporate videos, e-learning, telephone messages on hold and IVR, business presentations and television programs.
Having a neutral English accent, (or heavy Australian accent when required!) Sarah’s voice is adaptable for every brief – she can provide an energetic, light or fun voice style for retail and hard-sell commercials; a deeper, stronger and more authorative voice for corporate presentations; or a warm, natural and friendly voice for telephone on hold messages, e-learning and much more.

I have spent the last 11 years providing voice overs for international television and radio commercials, corporate videos, e-learning, telephone message on hold, business presentations and television programs.
I have a fairly neutral transatlantic accent, but can also offer a strong Australian accent if required.
I have also had over 10 years experience working in television production, 8 of which I was a broadcast editor and designer for a television production company based at Channel 9, a local television station in Adelaide, South Australia. As my work has involved many television commercials, programs and videos over the years, in relation to voiceovers I consider myself to be very experienced in understanding a client's brief and adapting to their needs!
My professional voice training was a year of personal coaching with long renowned Australian radio disc jockey Vaughn Harvey, who had over 50 years experience in the industry and ran his own radio voice over training school in Adelaide.
