She is Fierce
Find your voice & raise it the hell up.
Lip Service is my passion project. A dream born out of more than a decade of working with, what we in the biz call, professional voice users: PVU’s. A PVU is anyone whose voice is essential to her livelihood: actors, singers, and broadcast personalities often come to mind first but the list also includes teachers, clergy, lawyers, salesforce, receptionists..you get the idea.
As far as I’m concerned, all women are PVU’s and their voices should be honored as such. Do you know a mother whose voice isn’t essential? Let’s expand that. Do you know a woman whose voice isn’t essential to her career, her family, the world? Imagine a world without the voices of Maya Angelou, Malala Yousafzai, Gloria Steinem, your mother, your best girlfriend, your midwife, your hair stylist. I don’t know about you, but I’d be an uninspired puddle of loneliness with postpartum PTSD and a really unfortunate asymmetrical bob.
Officially, I am on faculty in the School of Theatre & Dance at East Carolina University, maintain a private client list of PVU's nationwide, and am a researcher focused on the intersection of brain science and voice science. Here at Lip Service, I am a woman hell bent on empowering other women by giving them the tools to drown their fears and raise their voices.
If you stopped by because it’s been awhile since someone reminded you that you have a voice, and that voice can move mountains, please, allow me. If you already feel fierce like Michelle O. with a story to tell, please, allow me to help you speak your truth in a voice that is strong, stable, and sustainable. If you find yourself in meetings, with clients, at book club, and keep swallowing the impulse to say that you deserve a raise, you have a creative solution, and Drinking & Tweeting should absolutely be on the list for June, Karen. You belong here. Welcome.

Here's the Roadmap...
We recommend using a new module each week, but you're in control, so take all the time you need.
Meet Your Voice (She's Dying to Meet You)
We're going to deep dive into breathing..posture..and why shapewear is the root of all evil. We're also going to give you the tools to ensure your voice sounds its best even in the early morning..after a late night..and too much tequila.
The Nitty Gritty: Quick Fixes to Common Vocal Problems
Do you like the sound of your voice? Whether you're a confident speaker..think you sound like Mickey Mouse on helium..or have never thought about it before, this is the week we start making physical changes to your sound. We're going to help you create a voice that is clear, confident, and reflective of who you are & what you stand for.
Every woman has the voice in her head. You know, the one who says, "You're not good enough..no one likes you..and everybody's laughing." We have that voice. Her name is Barbara and she's very melodramatic. When she shows up, we tell her to grab a LaCroix & take a seat in the lobby because we do not have time for that shit right now.
