Voice Over


Coaches have described my voice as a unique mix of gentleness and empathy with intelligence and an air of authority. My sense of humor is legend and I have had people ask me if they could record my laughter! I enjoy expressive reading in which I can explore various characters using accents and voice pitch changes.

There is a distinct, musical quality to my voice. The result is a mixture of versatility with artistic flair.

Voice and stage coaches have long noted the unusual, "take charge" quality of my voice, and it led to me being cast in the title role of Lysistrata as a freshman in college. I'm told that my voice lends itself to well to being the perfect spokesperson for every woman.
