HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Kathy is one of the founders of Windy City Voice Talents located in Chicago IL. She is a voice over artist, copywriter, and jingle writer. Kathy's warm, crystal clear voice brings a special touch of class and elegance to her voice over work. Clients and voice over coaches have described Kathy's voice as "versatile, sophisticated, smooth, genuine, trustworthy, articulate, caring, and strong" which makes her voice appropriate for a wide variety of genre and voice over projects. This includes commercials, radio, TV, eLearning, narrations, industrials, children's books, IVR, websites, and audiobooks. Kathy is also experienced in broadcast marketing and robocall advertising.
A lifelong vocalist and musician, Kathy also uses her musical talents at Windy City Voice Talents to write and record jingles. She has directed and created projects in both English and Spanish for notable corporations including Sylvania and American Drug Stores.
Just so you know, Kathy's voice is not "new" behind the mic! Her singing voice has been enjoyed by young and old alike through her years of writing and recording work for young children. In the early career years following her studies at Northwestern University, Kathy Poelker founded Look At Me Productions, Inc. where she writes, records, and publishes children's educational music CDs and books used by teachers and programs throughout the United States and internationally. Kathy is a popular, motivational Keynote speaker who addresses early childhood teachers and professionals at conferences and programs throughout the country. Her music has won an ASCAP Popular Award every year for 23 consecutive years from 1988 through 2011. She has written and recorded over 150 songs for children in three languages, and her voice over work includes narrations for two complete series of children's sing-along/read-along books.

Hi Kathy. I haven't been on this site for a while. I work as a Production Coordinator for television & Film (that's how I survive & I do not wish to leave my day job) I do voicing because it's fun and a great passion of mine. I do not intend to rely on it for survival but for the Love of the Art. My advice: have a great day job to sustain you and study & practice all the time with your vocal deliveries. Eventually something will come along...when you leasy expect. After 7 years of training and application I booked 2 Universal Animations this year 2012. A sweet little perc.
