A British Blend
I'm a Surrey girl, born in Croydon, UK, but I flew the coop to the Land of the Free, Home of the Brave, some considerable time ago.
I may have settled here in Charlotte NC, but my roots are undeniably British.
I've always been creative; theater, choir, orchestra, anything performance-related and I was and still am, all about it.
In high school a teacher wrote on my report card, "She's vivacious, effervescent, bubbly and full of sparkle."
Given my love for bubbly, it was incredibly fitting.
For years, as I read to my children, animating their toys and stories, and friends would urge me to, "Read books for a living", or " Come in and do our office training - your voice is great for it", I began to seriously consider voice over.
So after raising our daughter and two sons, and releasing them from the coop, I pursued my goals.
But what of those moments when I am not in a dark, recording booth?
I'm a Christ-follower, Mimi to an adorable little grandson Theodore, who keeps me on my toes, kayak with my husband, cultivate an English garden and always have a book on the go.
Period dramas - absolutely, because I love anything truly vintage and history.
I keep up to speed with the world of Formula 1 and fully intend on owning either a Mclaren or an Aston Martin Vantage.....but I am stumped on the color, so that reality may be a while off yet.
And at the end of a long day, a smooth Bourbon is my indulgence..... or bubbly......I'm happy with either.
