"Versatile zany sophisticated evil grandmotherly"

I can provide clear professional delivery suitable for corporate narrations, messages on hold, technical reads, documentaries and e-learning courses. My voice can be warm, down-to-earth, informative and sincere for commercials and promos. My first love is character work, and I will tackle many types of roles and styles for projects such as audiobooks and commercials, including projects calling for character singing. As a voice actor, I can sound intelligent, kind, folksy, sophisticated, evil, zany, sensual, goofy, young, old and much more. I have a professional attitude and am easy to work with.


I have trained with voiceover talent, producer and coach Ray Nakamoto of Nakamoto Productions in Sacramento, Calif., as well as with Cammie Winston, Donna Christie, Bill Whitman, Stan Lemkuil, Susan Hayward, Charlie Holliday and others in workshop settings. I have a bachelor of arts degree in theater and received additional training in acting (Meissner technique), vocal production (Alexander technique), script interpretation, movement, clowning and improv through the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco, the B Street Theatre Conservatory in Sacramento and Mountview Drama School in London. I have acted in many plays and musicals and for 10 years sang in and was business manager for a Northern California-based novelty a cappella quartet. I also work professionally as a writer and editor and can assist with scripts for commercials and corporate training videos.
