Originally from Scotland (and yes, our National Animal is the Unicorn!!! 🦄), 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, choir performances and piano recitals (inspired by my Grandfather who performed at the Royal Albert Hall in the Brass Band National Championships of Great Britain). 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’.
Before being serendipitously guided to Storytelling & Voice Acting, I studied Business Accounting & Administration and enjoyed a successful and rewarding career working within international 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 an important part of my roles, and included large international industry conferences, galas, balls, and inter-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 15 1/2 years, my husband and I moved to beautiful Naples, Florida...
In 2019 I became a full-time Storyteller & Voice Actor. In November that year I was truly honored and humbled to be chosen as the recipient of the prestigious 'Society of Voice Arts and Sciences J. Michael Collins Academic Scholarship', leading to the early 2020 opportunity and experience of living steps from the Hudson River in wonderful West Village NYC, studying at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting, volunteering with the Society of Voice Arts and Sciences two days each week at their offices in the historic Ed Sullivan Theater building on Broadway, and of course, being coached and mentored by the best of the best! My deepest appreciation and everlasting gratitude to all who were part of my journey...
As an animal lover, wildlife & nature warrior, outdoor adventurer + discoverer, my passions (in addition to VO!) are voracious volunteering https://yourinternationalvoice.com/giving-thanks, traveling, hiking, biking, camping, off-roading, and photography. I also love living steps from the water, nature & wildlife, on the edge of Everglades National Park!
For me, this truly is 'Heaven on Earth'! 🌟🌎🌊🙏🌊🌎🌟

The color blue can symbolize unwavering loyalty.
This faithfulness springs from rich devotion and sincerity that is willing and able to go above and beyond what is expected.
Water has no natural boundaries. It takes the shape of its container. When a person looks into water, their image is reflected back to them.
Water takes on many forms - it can be frozen solid or flowing liquid. Water can be a gentle stream or a formidable wave.
Water signs (I'm a Scorpio Sun) are therefore very adaptable. They will deeply feel the full range of feelings and can have immense emotional intelligence.
Their sensitivity can foster heightened intuition and creativity.
Live life like water ~ peaceful yet powerful & adaptable. Nourishing & nurturing. Let it flow...
Create inspiring waves on it...waves that reach & touch hearts in the most special way 💙💙💙
