Bobbin Beam signed up with Voices.com within the last year and launched her new website, bobbinbeam.com, which she designed herself.

Recently, Bobbin was hired to be the new voice of the Los Angeles Times Auto Attendant Customer Service IVR system, a job she landed through Voices.com. The complex IVR system is a convergence of state of the art computer programming, hardware, software and digital voice integration. The session involved about 2600 voice prompts and took nearly six hours to record.

Her voice has been aired by many, including AT&T, Microsoft and Hewlett- Packard. Bobbin's work has even been on display at the Smithsonian.

Bobbin began her career over 35 years ago as a radio announcer in Milwaukee, where her work took her to Chicago and San Diego. While living in San Diego, she also began to do voiceover work in Los Angeles, and Orange County as a voice over and on-camera actress.

In 1994, she grew tired of all the driving, and created and managed a successful digital sign and graphics firm for 12 years and did voice on the side. In 2003, Bobbin faced breast cancer, sold the sign business but came through as a survivor” more determined than ever to rededicate herself to her first love, her voice acting career and outfitted her professional in-home studio in 2005.

I feel Voices.com has all the right stuff going for it. Voice talents have so many resources to help their careers along here. The Voices.com staff is completely on top of trends of this ever-changing, dynamic industry. It's great. Not only do I have clients in LA and New York, but now in Moscow, Germany and Spain.”
