Transportation Podcasts
Have you ever considered doing a podcast for your organization? It's a great way to tell your customers or members the latest news, give them details about an upcoming meeting or even reach out to potential new customers. With everyone so busy these days, a podcast lets you communicate your message while your audience is doing everything from commuting to jogging.

You're the expert on your business and what you want to communicate but you may not be comfortable getting behind a mic. That's where I come in. Working with you, I can help you tailor your script and add the polish of a professional voice. A big plus is that I know transportation so I'll understand what you want to say and how to most effectively say in an audio format. Please contact me at to learn more. Remember, I can also take on other voice projects such as phone prompts and PowerPoint narrations. You can hear samples of my work by visiting
