that make sense.
Your message in your voice.
I was the kid who could get lost in reading the dictionary, loved the essay tests, wrote daily letters to my far away college boyfriend, and had Scrabble battles with my mom.
After 7 years of Catholic schools, I couldn’t decide what to wear so I ran away and joined the service — the United States Air Force and became a 79151 Radio and Television Journalist covering sports for the American Forces Network in Germany. When I completed my military career I kept my day job and continued as a voice actor, copywriter, and freelance soft news journalist.
One of my clients was the Hartford Courant, which was a big deal for me. I was so surprised when the editor asked me to freelance that I almost talked her out of it. You see, when I was growing up in Connecticut, I had pored over Erma Bombeck’s humor column “At Wit’s End” in the Courant and dreamt of being a writer for that paper.
Covering sports and soft news stories taught me how to ask questions and to listen carefully for the answers. It helped me recognize that everyone has their own lexicon of words and phrases that truly express their inner thoughts and character.
When I create copy for clients, I write it in their voice, with their pacing, and their emphasis. Otherwise, there would way too much Jane in the world.
As a voice actor, I bring other people’s word to life. Silly or sappy, sad or serious I can deliver your story so that your listener gets the message and maybe the joke.
Frankly, I love the word play, the construction of a thought, the crafting of a message that moves people to take action. Let me put your words in order and we can begin our quest for benevolent world domination.
Finding the right words to capture your audience takes a bit of planning. Having a structure that guides you with your copy writing and content development means you can get your message out quickly and easily.
Whether you are making a one on one sales pitch or presenting your idea to crowd, you need to be courageous. You need to know what you want to say, how to say it, and then fearlessly face your client, constituents, or crew.
Practice & Preparation
Athletes, musicians, artisans hone their skills through practice and preparation. But they all started not knowing any of it. You have to start somewhere and build on it. You can have a strong business voice.

I have a diverse client portfolio. What they all have in common is the need to define who they are and what they offer so that they connect with their audience.
