Sara Sheckells

Telling stories as a radio host, then as a costumed tour guide, Sara Sheckells followed a career path into academia before her love of the literary pulled her back to the mic.

Sara's narration style has been described as sophisticated, smooth, and smart. Sara offers versatile audiobook narration, eLearning, and commercial voice over services to a diverse range of clients. She operates a professionally sound-treated home studio outside of Boston, MA

A New England native, Sara lives north of Boston with her family, including a supportive spouse, two brilliantly brained kiddos, and a boisterous boxer dog.
