Thanks for coming here to find out more about me–how kind of you! I’m more than just a professional female voice over actor, I’m a human!
Although I love to travel, there’s no place like my home in Missouri. I was born and raised just north of Kansas City, and being a Midwest girl, I believe in hard work, and infuse authenticity into everything I do (and say!).
I’ve always been fascinated with people. I’m the kind of person who strikes up a friendly conversation with the cashier at the grocery store, or the guy standing next to me in a long line. Relationships matter to me and I’m a natural extrovert, so I am grateful to have many friends who bring great joy to my life.
When I got to college and discovered that you can actually get a degree in communicating effectively with other human beings (who knew?), I couldn’t get signed up fast enough! Heading into my senior year, I had the crazy idea of becoming a TV advertising executive, so I landed an internship at a nearby cable station.
One day, a producer asked me to read the script for a commercial and I suddenly discovered my passion for voice-over! That was 15 years ago, and now here I am, a professional female voice over actor recording in my home studio or with real people in their Kansas City area studios.
Even when I’m not behind a microphone, I still hone my skills regularly by reading to my kids or sitting on the couch with my husband and our two rescue cats trying to skip watching tv and get straight to the commercials (y’know–research).
I also value a healthy lifestyle for myself and my family, so planning whole food meals & time to exercise ranks pretty high on my to-do list. I’m an unashamed coffee drinker, total people person, and avid user of LinkedIn to build professional relationships.
I love meeting new people through social media, so feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Let’s keep in touch!
Oh, and if you want to read a more complete story of how I got into voice acting, I was interviewed by VoyageKC about that very topic and you can check out that article here.
The Abaton Calendar is a resource created for and by voice talent, to help create meaningful connections and forge and maintain professional and personal relationships. (And hopefully, have a hell of a lot of fun in the process).
