screen shot of an article titled Lisa Leonard Celebrates Her 20th Year as Voice Actor. Article shows 2 headshot photos of blonde woman posing with microphone.I got a nice surprise today when I opened the new edition of Philly Ad News, the magazine put out by Philly Ad Club about my 20th VoiceOver anniversary.  Instead of just a brief mention, I saw a whole paragraph and not one but three photos of me.  One of the pictures dates back to my old radio DJ days at WOBM-FM, part of Townsquare Media in New Jersey.

This whole VO anniversary has provided plenty of opportunity for reminiscing.  And it’s inspired me to get in touch with old colleagues and collaborators I’ve not spoken to in a while.  Looking back at the last two decades reminds me how fortunate I’ve been to have met so many good people along the way.  I’m forever grateful for the clients who gave me a shot in the early days.  I’m even grateful for the mistakes I made as a newbie.  That’s how I’ve learned and grown into the VoiceOver artist that I am today.
