Melissa has always loved words; reading them, speaking them, singing them, the very sound of words expressing emotion, conveying ideas, and moving people.
She spent most of her youth reading, singing, dancing, and performing local theater. Majoring in English, Melissa shared her passion for words as a middle and high school English teacher; creating a loving, encouraging, supportive, and inspiring learning environment for her students. Melissa is a life-long learner and took advantage of an opportunity for personal growth and development educating adults in a corporate environment.
Melissa approached this new opportunity with an infectious enthusiasm and was soon motivating adult learners in the US, Europe, and Asia/Pacific. She found success as an instructional designer, corporate trainer, and training manager. With her extensive and broad experience in corporate training, being equally adept at creating learning materials, Melissa has cultivated a unique set of skills.
Melissa’s love of the written word and passion for proclaiming them came to full fruition through her service as a Lector at Church. Soon, as head of this ministry, Melissa was training and inspiring others to proclaim The Word with the same sincerity and heartfelt approach she was well-known for by her fellow parishioners. This service brought all of her gifts into play and planted the seeds for Melissa’s future as she ultimately realized her life-long passion for words was actually a calling. By these experiences, Melissa decided to use her God-given talents for Voice Over.
From individual live training to web-based instruction; from product demonstrations to product education; from the classroom to the office to the pew; from trade shows to annual sales meetings; Melissa has done it all.
Melissa’s more than just a beautiful voice. When you hire Melissa, you get all of her knowledge, experience, and talent behind the voice. You get all of her passion, enthusiasm, energy, joy, and genuineness in her voice, all from her fully-equipped professional home studio.
