Elizabeth brings a wealth of experience to narration/VO with over 30 years performing and over 20 years teaching experience. Born and raised in Minnesota, with stints in Massachusetts, Maine and Wisconsin, she earned her MFA in Acting from the University of Minnesota, then continued acting in Minneapolis/St. Paul on stage and on camera, notably at the legendary Dudley Riggs’ Comedy Theatre and the Jungle Theatre, among others. She began her academic career teaching Voice for the BFA and MFA programs at ‘Ole Miss’ in Oxford, Mississippi, then moved to Virginia where she currently teaches Acting, Voice, and Dialects at the College of William & Mary. She has served as director and voice/dialect coach for numerous productions, both on campus and in the wider community.
Voiceover and Narration are now her prominent passions, bringing all of her expertise to the brew. Along the way, Elizabeth has earned acting awards, teaching accolades, AudioFile Magazine Earphones Awards, two Voice Arts Award nominations, and a 2016 Audies nomination. In addition, one of her titles was on AudioFile's Best of the Year lists for 2016. Working out of her home studio in Williamsburg, Virginia, Elizabeth pours vocal vividness and ‘wiley’ wit into the pot; and out come rich imagery, intimate engagement, and a bevy of characters.
