Overview

My name is Karen and I am a British Voiceover Artist based in a small village in the Peak District famous for rock climbing and caving terrain. When I’m not roaming the hills with my two daughters and Border Collie, Nell, I can be found in my broadcast quality home studio (much more comfortable than a dark Derbyshire cave!).
I am a qualified Speech and Language Therapist with a background of working in the NHS, as a specialist in voice disorders and lecturer in vocal function and voice production.
I also have many years of experience as a freelance voice therapist and vocal coach.
I studied saxophone and singing up to Grade 8 and played in several orchestras and Big Bands. Music gave me the opportunity to travel internationally and to perform as a singer, musician and presenter on stage and on the radio.
My voice is versatile but is often described as warm, friendly, reassuring and playful.
My natural accent is a gentle, general Northern English, having lived for most of my in the North West (Manchester/Lancashire) and North East (Newcastle, South Yorkshire).
With a combined background of performance and speech therapy, communication is my strong point. I approach every job with creativity, flexibility, an open mind and a sense of humour with the aim of providing a voice which resonates with the specific needs of each project.

Experience

I was introduced to voiceover world while living in the Middle East where, after being interviewed with my band on the local radio station, I was asked first to sing on some jingles, then to put voiceover to commercials.
Over the past 5 years, since returning to voiceover work, I have voiced commercials, jingles, audiobooks, e-learning resources, medical narration and corporate communications.
I have specialist training in ADR and am a Meisner trained actor.
In addition to my work as a voiceover artist, I am a vocal coach and love to help others make the most of their voices.
