I’m a voiceover artist described by clients as versatile, relatable, believable and pleasant … perfect for showcasing brands and connecting with customers across many genres. It’s the little things that matter and while we have a lot of fun, I always have my eye on the details and take great pride in my clients having an excellent customer experience.
Even as a tiny human from my humble roots in South Carolina, I loved making people smile. It’s kind of my thing. My mother said I would stuff my itty-bitty feet into tea cups, twirling to the music and pretending I was a ballerina. The resulting smiles from those who watched filled me with joy! So, off to dance class we went where I excelled and eventually became an assistant teacher. Even breaking my shoulder and the resulting surgery didn’t slow me down. As soon as I regained my strength, I was back to dancing and gymnastics using only one arm. It just never seemed like work to me.
I was always the kid who would coordinate neighborhood and school talent shows and get other kids to showcase their gifts. Coming from a military family, we moved frequently in my early years so I always had fresh talent to pursue! In junior high and high school, I became a cheerleader and led cheers with gusto! Being social and organized have always been my trademarks.
I’m described by friends as wise, caring and loyal … and a trusted go-to person. It probably won’t surprise you to learn that my choice of a major in college was psychology. It seemed like a perfect fit as I’m a real social butterfly and a people person. I excelled in this fascinating subject, but my professors quickly assessed that I’d be one of those counselors that would not be able to leave my work at the office. So, I chose recruiting / career counseling as a career instead and became a business owner and president of an industry-related state association. In my association work, I was always heading up committees for fundraising, industry training, seminars, etc., fulfilling my passion to find creative ways to help others define their purpose and reach their goals.
I never lost my love of performing and entertaining which morphed over the years from dancer / gymnast, to plays and musicals, and finally to voiceover and commercial work. I truly love voiceover as it allows me to take the ideas of others, lift them off of the paper and bring visions to life. One client described a finished project like this: “Debra’s interpretation of our script captured the emotion and feeling that we desired.” That’s my job, and it makes me smile!
