Mandy Nelson, Voice Talent Extraordinare

I met Mandy Nelson through Work It, Mom!, and have been dying to write a profile about her from the moment we met. She's the voice you hear when you call places like Travelocity, Sony, and other companies; if you ever forget to return a video and get an automated call from a certain big-name video store, that's her voice on the line. She's also hilarious, incredibly talented, and adept at juggling career and parenthood. This feature appeared in the Globe Sunday Magazine on June 29, and my absolute favorite part is her answer to this question:

Ever use your voice to fool your friends or confuse a telemarketer?
That is one of my favorite things to do. Nothing like telling them the call is being recorded for quality assurance purposes in my "voice." It just makes me happy. I do it to friends sometimes, too. I like to tell them their account is overdue. [More]
