Before beginning my creative venture, I studied Business Accounting & Administration and enjoyed a successful and rewarding career working within business teams, in demanding and challenging roles alongside senior executives who were visionaries and key decision-makers in Energy, Finance, Academia and with a Regional Medical-Health Board.
Corporate Event Management was also a major part of my roles and included large international industry conferences, galas and company events. I also traveled on business to London, England; Bergen, Norway and Baku, Azerbaijan.
In 2010, in parallel with my corporate career, I began building the foundation of my voiceover business. As well as studying, training and private coaching, I spent seven fun years volunteering behind the mic with 'Sight Into Sound', a non-profit station enriching the lives of individuals with visual, physical and learning disabilities, working live, on-air and in recorded radio including compiling, recording, and producing a program 'This Week In History', which aired for four years and was nationally syndicated.
In 2017, after living and working in Houston, Texas for almost 16 years, I moved to beautiful Naples, Florida... In 2019 I achieved my goal of becoming a full-time Voice Actor and was honored and humbled to be awarded the prestigious 'Society of Voice Arts and Sciences J. Michael Collins Academic Scholarship'. I will be forever grateful to have had the opportunity of moving to NYC in February 2020, of living in West Village, studying at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting, working with the Society of Voice Arts and Sciences at their offices in the historic Ed Sullivan Theater building on Broadway, and, being coached and mentored by the best of the best...
Originally from Scotland, I became a world adventurer at the age of nine and have since lived and worked in the UK/Europe and North & South America, with time spent in Africa, Asia, and Australia ~ Antarctica is on my wish list!
From the age of five (following in my Grandmother's footsteps), I loved performing onstage and fittingly my debut was as 'Archangel Gabriel' ~ The Angel of Communication! I also performed in dancing shows and competitions (inspired by my Grandfather who performed at the Royal Albert Hall in the Brass Band National Championships of Great Britain), choir performances and piano recitals. With a love of poetry, particularly Robert Burns'– ‘The Bard of Scotland’, at the age of 11, I won 'The Robert Burns World Federation National School’s Competition’ for my recitation of ‘Tam O’Shanter’.
As an outdoor adventurer + discoverer, I love hiking, biking, camping, off-roading, and photography. I also love living a few miles from Everglades National Park and steps from nature, the water and wildlife. For me, this truly is 'Heaven on Earth' 🌟🌎🌊
In my spare time, I write children’s books! www.BrambleBunny.com 🐰
As a lifetime voracious volunteer, I have served thousands of hours in the UK, USA and South America,
working with animals, children, senior citizens, reading services, theatre and media.
Over 20 years ago I also trained in Transcendental Meditation, leading to experiencing one of my volunteering highlights 🌟
After giving a presentation on Mindfulness & Meditation at The Naples Players, one of the top five community theatres in America,
I was honored and humbled to be invited by the Sunshine Kids Foundation to ‘Help Children With Cancer Smile' by creating a mind-settling meditation program to help support the children and their families through tough times.
