About

I’ve worked in radio, television and web for 15+ years and have had the chance to work with dozens of top-name clients like Macy’s, Sprint PCS, Sam’s Club and HP.   Some of my favorite gigs have been with Lemi Shine and the House of Blues Radio Hour.  I worked as an announcer for San Francisco NPR affiliate KALW 91.7 FM. And, I played Zhu Rong in the video game, Dynasty Warriors.

I also record a lot of IVR and customer service work.  I’m the voice that you hear when you call your favorite company seeking best-in-class customer service.  And it’s my job to annoy you as little as possible.   My IVR clients include Kaiser Permanente, ADT, Dollar Rent-a-Car and Vonage.

Testimonials

“The client was very happy with the spot and several people have made very positive comments about your voice.  Thanks again!”

Jonah Shinbach. Owner of Earshot Audio Post, LLC

“Intelligent, quick, highly responsive and dependable – one touch and go. Those are features of an expensive car really, if you want to get away from the crime scene in style.  Sense of style in voiceover artist is essential, when it comes to the highly complex job of character creating. She’s got all the goods for that. Melissa is a lucky possessor of a beautiful, full bodied voice with subtle huskiness in the lower register, which gives an extra depth to her delivery. Crisp diction, precise timing, flexible, if speed is needed to retch up tempo. And, yes, she’s got a sense of humor too. That is helpful, when directions are given.  She gets them right and it works every time. We are talking natural actress here. When in need of a creative force, a voice that fleshes out character, that delivers message with style and intelligence – Melissa Dodd is the artist to turn to.”

Yevgeni Sheshenin, Animated Film Producer/Director
