"Warm, youthful, energetic female American voice!"
Finley Smith

I have a great generation Y voice, which can grab millennials. But my voice type also works well for teens/tweens and children. Since I have extensive experience teaching/tutoring/coaching, I am a great fit for educational products, tutorials, and animation. I can pick up my energy to portray everything from an anxious character to a ditzy blond to a girl next door type.
