School Library Journal Starred Review


“Talent and professionalism are a wonderful, if rare, combination. When I sought talent to add voice-overs to my company’s education software, Tavia came highly recommended. And it didn’t take me long to learn why: she arrived prepared, received instructions well, and delivered a finished product that exceeded my expectations.

It was when I looked to her to manage the next round of voice-overs, however, that my appreciation for Tavia grew dramatically. From start to finish, she handled herself, and the project, with the utmost professionalism – turning a potential logistical challenge for me into a streamlined, efficient, satisfying experience.

Tavia is a rare & special combination-someone for whom I have both gratitude & respect.”

– Ogden Morse, CEO, Literary Companion
