Hello! I am Dr. Bonnie Paulsen, my life experience has made me a great fit for many different projects.
I am a Master Class Graduate from the industry leading school, Voices for All. I have a professional in-home studio which allows me to give you quick turnaround time and I use Pro tools for recording.
I have a Bachelor and Master of Science in nursing. I also have a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) in Transcultural Nursing. I have spent my career in a variety of settings - hospital, long term care and community. Using your voice in nursing can be very therapeutic and is something every nurse learns when working with people, clients, family, and co-workers. The use of voice can help someone who is in pain, having anxiety and be very calming. I can use this skill when doing voice over projects!
I am also a grandmother of FIVE grandchildren. Having those little ones around inspired me to write children's books. I am a published author! My first book was published in 2022 and I am working on getting a second one published.
I have read to groups of children during story hour at the library. Talk about needing to keep a group of pre-school children entertained when reading to them - it is a great skill I have picked up along the way!
I live in a suburb of the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro (Minnesota) area so am available for local recording projects as well.
My voice can be described as calming, compassionate, caring, and sincere. I can also use my voice to entertain when needed.
I look forward to hearing and working with you on your project!
Here are a few examples of commercials, short and sweet. These include Tylenol, Target and Oil of Olay to name a few.
These narration examples are a bit longer than the commercials to give you a better idea of my work with longer scripts.
