Kind Words

"The amazing Melissa was so professional yet so personable!! I received other auditions to get my book on audible but none with a voice as clear as Melissa. She also helped me every step of the way. As a personal coach, she is amazing and dedicated. I am so happy to have met this truly wonderful person!"

Bonnie
Author

"Melissa is a wonderful talent and a true creative spirit with a discerning eye for detail. She strives in her collaborations with others, takes direction well and thrives under pressure. Her optimism is contagious, she is a joy to work with and it goes without saying that she would be a valuable asset to any project."

Domingo
Voiceactor | Narrator

"Melissa is the embodiment of courage, talent and being able to take feedback and apply it immediately. I watched Melissa stand up on stage in front of hundreds of people to read through an audiobook manuscript for critique. She took the suggestions and was able to apply them to her next read like a champ. If you're looking for a versatile and friendly read, I'd absolutely recommend Melissa!"

Mike
Voice Actor

"Melissa dove fearlessly right into a pretty daunting large (audiobook editing) project of mine, handled learning a new software package (Adobe Audition) with ease, and helped me hit a tight deadline (on a 12-hour audiobook editing project) with ease. At all times her positive attitude, 'can do' spirit, attention to detail and project organization kept things flowing smoothly!"

Daniel
Audiobook Narrator

"Melissa is wildly talented and a joy to work with. Her reads are fresh, authentic and compelling regardless of the genre. Her versatility, acting choices, instincts, and creativity always result in wonderful performances that illuminate the copy she is working on in original and compelling ways.  "

Anna

Melissa is a friendly, positive, dynamic mom of a young child and enjoys bringing stories to life! 

Her background is in Electrical Engineering and Project Management, so the technical aspect of Voiceover comes very naturally to her.

Having been nicknamed "Sarah Bernhardt" as a child, she also has a natural flair for acting and the dramatic. She's constantly training and honing that natural talent to master her craft and is working on getting better and better every day!

Focused on audiobooks, commercials, explainer videos, animation and eLearning projects as her primary craft, Melissa has also volunteered her voice for numerous educational materials the Learning Ally in NYC - recording audiobooks for Blind and Dyslexic students and studied the craft under experts in the industry such as Lisa Biggs, Anna Garduño, Kelly McGee, Roger Becker and Brent Alan Hagel. She is recommended highly by award-winning members of the SOVAS Academy (Society of Voice Arts and Sciences based out of Los Angeles). Her top notch studio sound is signed off by audio engineering powerhouses Uncle Roy Yokelson, Don Baarnes and Frank Verderosa.

Noted for her warm, engaging, relatable, conversational, maternal voice and midwestern accent, Melissa can range from serious to seriously silly and over-the-top. Musically she is a natural Alto, with both the upper resonances of a younger woman, and the diction and lower range of a more mature woman.
