Holly

Conectado Desconectado
Thoughtful, creative, hard-working bilingual professional (US English/Spanish) with a Master's Degree in Spanish language and 15 years of professional experience in non-profit organizations and social/educational services. My writing skills are superb and I am particularly good at crafting content with compelling language that resonates with the American audience and may be utilized in various contexts - academic, colloquial and contemporary slang, children's/young adult themes, etc. I can rework content using natural, recognizable wording that flows and engages the reader, while preserving industry-appropriate terminology and tone. My voice is warm, trustworthy, and soothing, and my voice quality is one that people gravitate towards. I can adjust the tone, energy, and pace of my speech to complement just about any voice over project. Kindly consider me for your next project - you will not be disappointed with the outcome. I look forward to working with you!
