The Lady Known as
My business, Word of Mouth Productions, provides coaching for people who want to use their voice more effectively.
I’ve been a Voice Over Performer since 1972 and I’ve been Voice Coaching since 1976.
I was the First Woman Announcer for a Network Soap and Game Show and my voices for Radio & TV commercials have been heard on hundreds of National and Local spots.
My Masters Voice Over Class has been accredited by UCLA. In 1998, after many years of observing and teaching people how to use their voices, I developed a unique program specifically for women called, “Creating Your Voice Image”. In workshops or private coaching I help people find or create a positive and effective voice persona. It’s truly enjoyable seeing each person discover and use their own charisma in personal presentations.
I've coached people to use their voice more effectively, from all walks of life, such as Political Candidates, Doctors, Criminal Attorneys, On-Line Instructors, HR Directors.

“I’ve worked with Lou for years and it’s always a pleasure. She offers a variety of styles and is fast, fun, flexible and consistent.
