Martitia has coached actors in Italy, New York and Los Angeles in three languages for a variety of accents using imagery to encourage the actor to find the character, as well as business executives for corporate presentations. Coaching: accent reduction (i.e. British to American, Southern), & addition – (ie American to British, French etc) variety in presentation for speeches, work on timbre, pitch and breathing in a natural way allowing a Presenter / Interviewer/ Actor/ to incorporate clarity and ‘tone’ into normal speech; simple tools for greater ease in communication while respecting the performer’s talent.

Hello Martitia, I respect the fact you are a coach and your accent range could prove very useful in my realm if you're interested.
Welcome to VU. You're in good company here!
I wish you the best of success in all your adventures! I'd love you to join my group Ask a Casting Director. There's a lot of useful info that might help you there.
I'm a Casting Director and experienced actor (4 octave range) for Video Games and more. It's a unique genre, unlike any other that requires a lot of differentiation in voices because there are so many parts with so few lines each. It requires a huge vocal repertoire. If you feel you're experienced as a voice actor with a lot of diverse and useable characters, and you can hit the ground running, you can go to my Talent Assessment page. Classes and coaching links are also there, if you'd like more instant help to get where you need to be to land those jobs.
Welcome to Voiceover Universe! You'll meet some old friends and make some new ones around here!
I hope you'll check out and join a group that we started not too long ago called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. It's a group dedicated to discussing ways we can market ourselves - what works; what doesn't. With your experience, you would be a tremendous resource!
