Voice of Joice Audiobook Narration
About a dozen years ago, I left a PhD program in theatre because I realized that while I thoroughly enjoyed the coursework, the career path I really wanted was not in academia, but in storytelling. After all, I had been devoted to storytelling since I was a child - first as an avid reader, next as a movie watcher, and finally in my first stage role as a duckling. I haven't looked back since that decision, when I returned to working as a professional actor and director. Today, whether on a stage, in front of a camera, or through a microphone, I still relish the singular experience of collaborating with a writer's words.
With a masters degree in Theatre from University of Central Missouri and ten years of regional theatre credits, my storytelling versatility means I can jump smoothly from the immersion of memoirs and literary fiction to the many character voices of genre novels; from the youth, energy, and vulnerability of YA, to the focus and clarity of non-fiction; and more.
Finally, I have also worked in the non-profit arena for ten years combatting child exploitation and abuse, including as a trainer and speaker sought after from coast to coast.
I'm a dog lover, a Hufflepuff, and an avid traveler. And alas, my great woe is that I was not born in Britain and therefore will never qualify for the Great British Baking Show. (But you'll still find me whipping up great bakes in my kitchen!)
