When I was starting out in the VO industry it was definitely confusing. I had questions about training and demo production, branding, marketing, how to effectively use social media, websites, logos, and on and on. There’s so much information out there that it can be overwhelming.

Everyone’s journey is unique, but I’ve found that there are certain fundamentals that are essential to building your VO career on a solid foundation. I’ve learned a lot over the past 15 years as I grew my VO career in the margins while running my small brick and mortar pharmacy. And being able to transition to doing what I love on a full-time basis has been life-changing for me!

Over the course of my career, clients such as Hershey, Xerox, Dell, Microsoft, Paychex, Clorox, Sotheby’s, Bayer, Novartis and more have trusted me for their eLearning projects, corporate and web-based videos, image branding videos, course books, real estate videos, podcasts and commercials. I’ve also narrated over 260 audiobook titles to date in genres ranging from Business, Self-Help, Christian, and Children’s to Science, Entertainment, Fiction, and Spirituality.

While I’ve learned a lot, I’m constantly seeking out new information and continuing to hone my craft. The journey is never ending and it definitely helps to seek advice along the way.

If you’re looking for some guidance and input to help shorten your learning curve, then I might be able to help.

Here’s a list of just some of the topics that are included if we work together:

  • Getting focused
  • Finding the right coach and/or training company
  • Small business creation
  • The importance of branding
  • Effectively using social media
  • Creating your home recording space/studio
  • Providing amazing customer service
  • Podcasting
  • Performance feedback

In addition, you’ll also have access to my VO Success online course at a discounted price.

If you’re interested in working with me one-on-one for individualized consultations, I usually meet with students via Zoom and the sessions are either 30 minutes or 60 minutes.

The session will be specific to your journey and will range from the topics listed above to any specific questions or areas of focus that you’d like to cover.
