ABOUT ME

I started working in learning and development in 2001 for a children’s educational toy company. This position provided an opportunity to work with producers, sound engineers and animators and I loved the variety of the projects I was involved with. Coincidentally, I also voiced characters for several of the company’s products which inspired me to pursue voice acting in addition to instructional design.

I’ve worked in various roles in the corporate sector, from Instructional Designer to Senior Manager of Developer Support and Training. I’ve been fortunate to work in environments where I was a one-person training department (developing the department from the ground up) as well as environments with teams of learning professionals. Working in tech has enabled me to gain a solid understanding of Agile development cycles and how this approach applies to the development lifecycle for learning projects.

In 2018, I took the leap and launched my voiceover business. I had been working as a voice actor for several years at this point (and training for many years before that), but wasn’t quite ready to start my own business. Now I am able to offer this service in additional to instructional design and elearning development.

When I’m not working, I am traveling the world, hiking and/or rescuing animals.
