Introduction: I am a professional SAG/AFTRA actress with a background in language and dialects. Please see my website and imdb page for recent work I've come off of. Having worked over 25 years. I have worked for Disney, Warner Brothers, NBC/Universal, Sony Studios, Lucasfilm and many other 'of note' companies. I take a huge amount of pride in focusing on the individual and their specific needs. I tailor a curriculum specifically for you. Teaching. Helping aspiring actors realize their dreams. With regard to pursuing a VOICE OVER career: FAQs about getting into VO Q: Do I have to be in or near Los Angeles? A: No. No matter where you live, you can receive coaching via Skype, ZOOM or FaceTime. or phone. Q: Do I need a microphone set-up? A: Eventually, if you want to pursue voiceover. But it's not necessary initially if your computer has a built-in microphone. Q: Could I get coaching over the phone? A: Yes! And the entire session is recorded for playback afterward. Q: Can I get coaching in different areas of voiceover? A: Yes. Commercials, narration, e-Learning, animation, audiobooks, videogames, promos, trailers and more. Q: Is there homework? A: Absolutely! You can't progress unless you put in the practice. I send you homework days in advance and expect my students to be prepared for each session. Q: How long are the sessions? A: One solid hour. Q: Can I schedule coaching sessions when I want them, not on a weekly schedule? A: Yes! That's the beauty of phone or one-on-one coaching. You schedule sessions at your convenience. Q: Could I schedule a session on a weekend day or evenings? A: Sometimes, depending on my schedule. Q: What if I have to cancel at the last minute? Is there a cancellation fee? A: No! If you have to cancel for any reason--family, work, life...just contact me ASAP (as soon as possible) and we'll re-schedule. Q: So there's no cancellation fee? A: Correct. Because I reserve the right to re-schedule at my end if I need to at the last minute :). I am a working actor and sometimes need to do an audition or a VO job. Q: Do you take anybody? A: I work with anyone with an interest in voiceover who wants to learn how to deliver copy or text effectively and competitively. Also if you have some issues like autism, for instance, or strong English speaking native accent or unfamiliarity with the English language, I ALSO TEACH ACCENT REDUCTION OR THE AMERICAN ACCENT. Q: Is there an interview? A: No. I just need to know your background in either VO, acting or dialects, so I can fashion a curriculum for you. Q: How long does it take to be good enough to be professional? A: That depends on many factors: training, demos, agents, dedication, doing your research with regard to the project or character and diligence to your to the craft, luck and timing--variables that determine "how long." But if you've got a passion for voiceover, and learn to develop good skill-sets, you've got a shot. Q: Do you ever turn anyone away? A: If you're a nice/consistent student and want to learn I won't turn you away! Q: Do you work with minors? A: Yes indeed. I just want to discuss your career with your parents first please.

So far my experience with Tracy has been awesome, she provides great feedback, has a great understanding on the industry and gives you all the tools necessary to thrive in the Voice Acting/Acting business. She makes working fun and shes willing to work with people in a way that benefits both parties! If you help her out she will help you. I have enjoyed having her as a mentor/teacher and can’t wait to see what else she offers, her lessons are something to look forward to after a long stressful week of working/going to college. You can’t go wrong with having Tracy as a coach!

Tracy is absolutely INCREDIBLE as a coach!!! I cannot thank her enough for bringing me up to the level I'm currently at in my Voice Acting career. She helped figure out my strengths, weaknesses, and preferences within this industry. I genuinely valued all the time I spent learning voice acting with her and I'll never forget the things she's done for me. If you're lost/confused about voice acting and have no idea where to start, do what I did and hire Tracy. You will not regret it whatsoever!

I’ve been working with Tracy for the last few weeks and I already feel improvements since I started. She truly cares about her students and makes sure you are progressing by the end of every session. She really gives me the push I need to grow my confidence and skills, that make me enjoy acting even more. If you want someone who provides modern industry insight and who will genuinely coach you to be your best, I recommend her as your acting coach!
