Sheila Slater .....THE international Voice
Before becoming a voice artist, I worked for years as an on-camera reporter, news reporter, host, EMCEE, radio jockey and extra in film and TV in Germany and the United States.
I also look back on a successful career as a licensed broker and financial advisor that lasted a decade. In my humble opinion, voice acting has little to do with a perfect voice but everything to do with the ability to connect with people -- something I have been doing for decades.
My key voice descriptors are conversational, professional, attractive, calm, motherly, educational, and authentic.
I enjoy diving in to and performing different characters!
Conversely, my voice has been described as deep, husky, sexy, and sultry.
My voice has been compared to Susan Sarandon and Sigourney Weaver.
