Voice Over Actor
Welcome, thanks for visiting!

Thanks for checking out my site!

I wanted to take this page to share a bit about who I am.

I started out in Chicago Radio and my career ran the gamut from WMAQ All News Radio to WLUP, a personality based format and the most fun I’ve ever had sober.  I was also a TV reporter (CNN Chicago) and News Anchor (WMAQ TV:  24 Hour News Updates.)  While I was working in Radio and Television News Broadcasting, I naturally segued into commercial work, both Voice Over and On Camera.  I resurrected this career, at least the Voice Over part, when technology caught up to me and I was able to set up a professional studio at home.

Personally, I’ve been married to my husband forever and I still consider myself the luckiest girl alive.  We’ve been blessed to have lived in some amazing places:  from downtown Chicago (where I was born and raised) to the top of a mountain in Telluride, CO.  Then onto Newport Beach, CA (where I was NOT an Orange County Housewife!) Next?  Paradise…otherwise known as Kona, HI.  And now, South Reno…minutes away from Lake Tahoe.  In my spare time, I enjoy stand up paddling, tennis, hiking and weightlifting.
