I love my job. In fact, I have loved every minute of being a professional voice actor for the last seven years. My favorite thing to do is sit down behind the mic with a new script in my hands. And when I do sit down with that new script (maybe yours?), I’m ready.
I’ve invested in my recording studio, my equipment, and my training to deliver a high-quality product. The read will be right for the audience, with all the appropriate emotional beats; the audio will sound great – crystal-clear with broadcast-quality, and will be delivered the way you need it – directed session with a raw file, ‘cleaned up’ with light editing, or fully broadcast-ready mastered audio. If you need music and sound effects added, I can do that, too!
Your product will also be delivered when you need it. . .
Prior to voice acting I was a freelance writer, which benefits my clients because I understand:
- How to properly analyze and break down a script
- How to identify and reach the intended audience
- How to meet deadlines no matter what
Have I stayed up all night to get a project in on time? Sure, but in over a decade of freelancing I’ve never missed a deadline.
I came to voice acting late(ish) in life, but it wasn’t out of the blue. Performing has always been a part of my life. At one time I was a Musical Theater student with dreams of Broadway, and had years of classical voice training, which I now use to help me create character voices ranging from spoiled children to old crones.
When I’m not in my studio you can find me attending my kids’ events, walking my dog, singing at church, or lifting really heavy weights.
Oh, and why “not just a pretty voice”? Two reasons. First is the play on “not just a pretty face” (meaning someone has good looks and brains), which is a reference to my background in science and two Master’s Degrees in genetics. And secondly, as you’ll hear from my character demos – my work isn’t always about using a pretty voice. My characters sometimes have downright ugly voices. Listen to my “Grandmas and Witches” demo if you don’t believe me. 😉

“[Her] voice is so soothing and exciting at the same time. I love how she embodies the feel of the narrative and channels the emotions perfectly. . . She keeps the story alive, drums up the suspense, and makes the mystery come to life.” ~Rabia Tanveer, Readers’ Favorite *As Ellen A. Connor
What a brilliant find. Carrie nailed the character. Joy to work with!
It’s gratifying to find a reader/producer who has a real feel for the characters and knows how the author wished to portray them and then can pull it off.
Carrie conducts extensive research and has a wonderful talent for making even dry topics enjoyable. She is extremely reliable and has the ability to work on tight deadlines and is a consummate professional.
Carrie was awesome! Her audition came in and we knew we had our voice right away. She was personable on the phone and asked a lot of great questions before getting started. Her first takes were excellent, and after a round of notes we had everything we needed. Definitely recommend. Thanks, Carrie!
I am completely blown away. . .You’ve captured these voices in a way that I didn’t really think was possible. This will breathe such a sense of life into this game, and the way that you took Morgan from a sarcastic and biting character in the beginning to a more grounded and determined one in the end was EXACTLY what I was going for when I wrote the script.
Carrie was great! She has such a friendly, congenial voice. It’s both informative, and relatable!
Carrie is an absolute pleasure to work with. She’s a talented actress and a consummate professional. She worked back and forth with us as we honed in on our character, took direction well and offered a variety of expressive takes. And our sound engineer said the quality of her audio was exceptional.
