From real person to announcer; from mom next door to your Fairy Godmother having a grumpy day, Melinda is a seasoned voice actress with a wide range of deliveries. Fast and a pro in the studio.
Do you have the right voice for the job?
Director Martin Ritt calls it the ‘vein of gold’, a certain territory, a zone that actors get in where they’re doing exactly what it is they’re put on earth to do. You know a vein of gold performance because it’s dead on-target.
Doing voiceovers is my vein of gold. From the minute I stepped in front of the microphone I realized I had discovered my passion: to use my voice to create audio that would inspire the listener to take action.

Time for some Christmas Festivi-tea!
Isn’t it just plain fun to dress up and have a holiday tea party? One of my close girlfriends has a birthday close to Christmas and we use that excuse to pull out the wedding silver, get some yummy (and pretty!) tea sandwiches, and enjoy a few hours together during the holidays. This group of friends …
SO….WHAT’S THE GIFT IN THAT?
We’ve all heard about how important it is to find things to be grateful for, right? It’s easy to be grateful for kindnesses shown to us from others; finding a parking place close to the door in a full parking lot; a spontaneous hug from your child. But what about being grateful for harder things: …
