I was always doing different accents, but I felt naturally drawn to how we use our voices. I went to college and I came across a dialect class as part of my Theatre degree. I just did voices for fun my whole life, but this class really spoke to me. So, I dove in! I took all the dialects classes that I could (I studied dialects for a whole solid year).”
