Hey there! You made it to the About page! I’m glad you’re here. I can’t wait to get to know you, too!
WHO AM I?
I’m a professional US-based female voice actor with a SourceConnect Standard and ISDN-equipped studio. My voice can be heard internationally, and has been heard on national television networks as well as radio and other multimedia such as e-learning, web sites, video pre-roll, podcast intros/outros and promos, phone messaging, and beyond.
AM I ONE OF THOSE FLY-BY-NIGHT VOICE ACTRESSES?
No way! I’ve been been a full-time voice actor since 2007. Yep, this is how I make my living! I’m a pro. I’m punctual (I tell my husband allll the time, “You can never be too early, but you CAN be too late!” LOL), meet deadlines before they happen, can take direction well and pivot as you need. And, I’ve been told I’m a blast and easy to work with. Look, my job is to give you the read you want and need for your project, to make your job easier. It’s what I do.
WHAT DO I SOUND LIKE?
What I sound like and who I am, are really the same, because what you hear is what you get. I really hate talking about myself like this, so I asked my friends to describe me. Here’s what they had to say: “Boho and earthy, fun, bubbly, and perky… A woman with a positive attitude… Upbeat… She’s sincere, honest… Friendly, upbeat, easy going, good natured, happy, authentic, funny… She’s known to be resourceful, always inquisitive, and loyal… She is kind, thoughtful, caring, loving, tenacious, fun, strong, generous, and has a big heart.”
Well, there you have it.
Oh wait. How OLD do I sound? Well, while you probably can’t guess my age by hearing or seeing me (I was blessed with good genes in that way on my father’s side), my vocal voice over range is late teens to late forties. I miiiiiggghhhtt be “somewhere in that range” old, too.
Mmmmmm… hold on. Did you mean, what CAN I sound like? I book voice over parts for “frustrated mom” or “mom” in general, quite a bit, “annoyed teen” like, all the time, and “relaxed, laid back, every day person” constantly.
That’s me, in a nutshell!
WHERE HAVE YOU HEARD ME?
Commercials for Chelsea Handler’s podcast, Dunkin’, Febreze, Kohl’s, Drizly, Toto Washlet, Your CBD Store, QuickChek, Haverty’s, Preen Weed Preventer, Duncan Hines, Subway, Mederma, SeaWorld Orlando, Axe Shower Gel, Rita’s Italian Ice, Florida Lottery, Ohio Lottery, water parks, universities and community colleges, political campaigns, and many, many others since 2007.

IS MY RECORDING STUDIO IN A CLOSET?
Nope. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I know plenty of incredible voice actors with studio closets and fancy booths. But, I like my elbow room, since I’m in my studio all day. It’s a top notch, professional studio. It even has a window with natural light beaming inside, and a nice little sitting area, complete with a royal blue velvet chair for visitors. National and international commercials, narrations, and eLearning are recorded here. It is equipped with state of the art recording equipment like a Sennheiser MKH416, a ProFX10 board, ProTools 2020.5, a Symetrix 528e, SourceConnect Standard, and ISDN via a Telos Zephyr XStream.
Sometimes, other voice actors borrow my studio when they’re visiting my area. It’s definitely a good recording studio.
AM I SMART?
Well, that’s a weird question. LOL. I don’t think I’m particularly smart, but I did manage to graduate from the University of Florida (Go Gators!) with a Bachelor of Arts in English in 1994.
And, even after all these years in voice over, I continually practice the craft of voice acting for commercial, narration and promo with Marice Tobias and Nancy Wolfson, both based in Los Angeles, CA.
I’ve even won some awards. Not that awards have anything to do with smarts, but, when done right, they can be encouraging that you’re on the right track in your career, and life. Most recently, I won the 2020 ADDY Award for Voiceover, and the 2020 ADDY Best of Elements of Advertising Award, from my local Advertising Federation chapter. I’ve had other incredible honors, such as being the Keynote Speaker at the University of Florida’s Young Alumni Awards, and receiving the Outstanding Young Alumni Award myself a few years ago.
Ok, I think that’s enough about me!! I want to get to know you! Contact me, and let’s work together!
