You Already Know Me!
A Scoop of Natural, with a Side of Quirky, and Sprinkles of Sparkle on Top!
I’m the girl you smile and wave at, thinking we’ve met before. The neighbor you trust with your kids, pets and gossip.
Mostly, I’m the professional voice actor … The person who connects your audience with YOUR story; with the experience, work ethic and positive vibes you’ll feel great about having on your team!
Virtually, nice to meet you … Can’t wait to learn more about YOU, and how I can help!

Mel is a highly-talented voice over professional who provides a more professional and polished personality to audio projects.
I have had the pleasure of working with Mel over the past few years and cannot express enough what a professional, passionate and productive presence she is for our organization. Mel is the type of person who naturally shines but is still constantly looking for ways to raise the bar higher and never settles for mediocrity. She is dependable, hard working and someone who you can trust with full confidence to be the voice that effectively communicates your message to an audience and achieve your goals.
Melanie is a wonderful communications professional. She is also quite creatively fun to work with! Her demeanor is friendly and comforting and you immediately feel reassured that your needs are being heard and taken care of. Her work is based upon a solid ethic, concern and passion for meeting short and long term goals. She is organized, confident and honest. A project taken on by Mel is certain to be accomplished with excellence and the highest standards.
I have had the pleasure of working with Mel for almost three decades. I’ve utilized her performance skills as well as her communication and professional skills, with great success. She has performed copy for my studio on numerous occasions and I’ve always been impressed by her creativity, flexibility, and adaptability. She takes adjustments well and needs little explanation. When it comes to her professional and communication skills, I have appreciated her timeliness, pleasant demeanor, and dedication. I would not hesitate to recommend Mel if you’re looking for a truly good person who can also deliver a solid read and … she can provide well-written copy, too!
