A Day in the Life of a Voiceover Actor/Mom

When people find out what I do for a living, their first reaction is “Wow! That’s so cool!” Then they look down at the two adorable little boys I have in tow and ask, “how do you find the time to do all that with the kids?” The answer? It’s not easy. Finding perfect balance …
