Priscilla’s voice is friendly, conversational, and warm. As a five star-rated talent, Priscilla has spent the last twenty-five years working as a professional actor, voice actor, and professor of theatre.
A relative newcomer to Voices, she specializes in “real person” testimonials in e-learning, business, and radio and television projects. She also voices characters who might speak in a dialect or accent. Because of her former work as a professor, Priscilla especially enjoys working on projects that educate listeners, such as narration projects for the medical industry and her series of safety videos for the Norwegian oil and gas industry. Priscilla now records her auditions in her Minneapolis home, where she records jobs for clients like Google, National Geographic, and Johnson & Johnson, to name a few.
Before Voices, Priscilla was a professor and professional stage actress. She had been doing freelance voice over work for commercial and print agents in her city, thanks to her own marketing efforts to production companies and advertising agencies.
With a background in theatre, Priscilla was often drawn to audition for the ‘real person’ testimonials of middle-aged and senior characters – roles with fewer opportunities in her local market.
Since joining Voices in 2015, Priscilla has booked 29 jobs – that’s almost two jobs a month. She typically completes 25 auditions a week, using her Voices platform.
For Priscilla, auditioning for work with Voices improved not only the mass and variety of work that she gets, but also complimented her work as an on camera actor. Through Voices’s platform, she has been able to maximize the number and diversity of jobs that she gets.
Priscilla has also enjoyed the unique professional benefits of having a membership with Voices, namely the fact that she can use her Voices profile as another tool in her marketing kit.
Through Voices, Priscilla had the opportunity to be the voice of Gloria Ferrer in a short film about her winery in Napa. She was able to utilize her dialect skills throughout with an authentic sounding Spanish accent, narrating a short film series for The Gloria Ferrer Winery in Napa California:
Like her role as Gloria, Priscilla has had other opportunities to utilize her accent skills through the platform. She voiced Dr. Margaret Chan, the head of the World Health Organization for an internal business project with Johnson & Johnson. She has also voiced Haya, a senior reminiscing about Insight Tec’s Neurosurgery for Tremors.
And then there was another unique accent role for ClassTracks, an elearning program for english learners. It was another accent highlight for Priscillia, playing a high school Spanish language teacher by day and a Zorro figure with a Spanish accent by night for ClassTracks!
Signing up with Voices has exceeded what Priscilla was expecting when she first started out. The result has been a very fulfilling career, with promise of even more great opportunities to stretch her acting muscles down the road, all while still maintaining a steady flow of work.
