CATHLEEN WHITE'S VOICE: A natural, approachable, versatile Midwestern voice. Do you need a casual, conversational, believable, friendly next door neighbor voice? Perhaps you seek a gentle, engaging, soothing parent to child voice. Possibly you are looking for a mature, sincere, informative senior voice. Or maybe you need a polished, articulate, professional, businesslike, corporate voice? Cathleen’s voice reflects her varied life experiences. She can sound refined, articulate, educated, classy, intelligent. Her diction can be clear, polished, business-like, professional. Or it can be down home casual with a country Western twang. Her Minnesota roots come out in a broadly drawn Swedish accent. She can sound like a storyteller for a small child, a confident marketing director, an empathetic and sensitive teacher, a professional business woman, a warm and caring friend, or a sweet, elderly next door neighbor. For these and other approaches, let Cathleen White read your script.

Cathleen White was raised in Illinois and Minnesota. Her natural speech is the neutral Middlewestern voice often heard on American national television. She attended public schools in Bordeaux, France, and Brussels, Belgium. On a recent trip to Provence a local resident commented that her French accent was "the accent of which I dream".
She holds two advanced degrees in library and information science from the University of Illinois, where her Ph.D. dissertation was a study of academic collections of recorded sound. She has been a faculty member at the University of Illinois and the University of Utah, where she taught graduate and undergraduate classes in children’s books, library management, and library media services. She served as supervisor of information services for Hercules Aerospace and later as director of library/media services for Salt Lake Community College. She is comfortable with technical terminology and complex concepts and at ease with training and educational programs.
Since retiring from the library world Cathleen has turned to acting and commercial modeling. She has appeared in Internet and tv commercials, and her voice can be heard in telephone message scripts produced by LeaveMeOnHold. For two years she has done a monthly radio interview for Wasatch Mountain State Park.
Cathleen loves animals, and since 1996 she has raised show llamas at her ranch, Pear Tree Llamas. She has served as a ring announcer for livestock shows.
Cathleen’s other special interests and skills include technical writing, training presentations, hiking and backpacking, cross-country skiing, travel, square dancing, and gardening.
