"Native Northern,assured,warm,relaxing, maternal,slightly husky"

I'm a native northerner, Durham born and bred, now living in Newcastle upon Tyne. Described as a "refined North East" voice, I have generic northern vowels and that famously friendly north east intonation- "bath" not "barth"- but can say otherwise if required!

A former solicitor, I'm very comfortable in the corporate world, so corporate videos, explainers, promos, training, short awards films, telephone and IVR are right up my street! I actually enjoy technical language, which would send many running the other direction and am well used to deadlines, delivering efficiently, being reliable, excellent with communication and love working in a team, happily adapting delivery to suit the audience.

As a mother of two sons, I can deliver an authentic loving, soft or playful maternal voice, as well as a very cross or frustrated one as required!

Some very kind words......

" Jo really knows her onions! " Paul Carter (Get Carter Productions)

" We recently worked with Jo on a radio campaign. She was a first class VO, very accommodating and professional, even with the short notice we gave. We'll definitely be using her again" Phil Greenwood (re-production)

" Loved working with the very sexy-voiced Jo!" Michelle Taylor (Tallulah Love lingerie)

" An intelligent, educated, but down to earth voice - Jo will bring any voice-over project to life...a warm, husky, relaxing British female voice with a hint of England's North East " Gary Terzza (Live Announcer on Channel 4, E4 and More4)

"Getting our "tone of voice" exactly right as part of a wider re-branding initiative was essential. Jo captures our essence of professionalism, approachability and clarity with just the right note of someone from this region. She is a true professional herself who goes the extra mile to deliver the highest of standards " Head of Marketing (Sintons Law LLP)

"Jo's voice is clear, professional and captures the image we wish to portray for our business. Working with Jo was easy - her talent for understanding our requirements, completing the voice-over and follow up was a delight. " Jonathan Mathews (Protirus)

" Jo turned round a brilliant voice over within a very short space of time and perfectly on brief. She was a pleasure to work with " Tim Cochrane (British Heart Foundation)
