About Mary Van De Velde

I have over 25 years professional experience in the voice over business, most recently featured in a Netflix documentary Meltdown: Three Mile Island. I also specialize in E-Learning, corporate, industrial, telephone messaging, and medical narrations. Coming from a radio news background, I'm highly skilled at documentaries, promos, commercials and radio imaging. I work out of two studios throughout the day, so I can usually have projects done within 24 hrs or less!
