About Me

It started when I was about four. You know...this love affair with talking! My older brothers relentlessly tried to shut me down! Then on my first day of kindergarten I was placed in the corner, for what else? Talking!

 

Throughout grade school I spent many a time in the hallway (instead of learning) guess what for? Then at 12, speaking before several hundred people...I got the bug. Not only did I love talking, but also PERFORMING! High school, camp plays, leaving Radio after 10 years to raise a family didn't stop me! I kept getting asked back to the voiceover party and it's been a blast all these decades! 

 

As the voice of some of Canada's top companies' telephone systems, government departments' and business' web explainers, e-learning courses, and commercials of all kinds, nothing or no one will shut me down...especially when telling your clients' stories!
 
Whatever your project, I am the expert who convincingly conveys your product or service. I am also the playful, enticing voice that incites curiosity and attracts listeners on radio, TV, or the Web to explore more. My confidence reassures your audience when learning a new skill so they become comfortable enough to want to learn more.
