Burlington, VT based female voice-over talent Mary Catherine Jones welcomes visiting Buffalo, NY based voice talent Peter K. O’Connell to Vermont

As you know, I was recently in Vermont. Burlington, VT to be specific and Vermont was my 34th state that I have stayed over night in to reach my goal of spending at least one overnight in each of the 50 United States.

And as with all these journeys, I try and connect with local voice-over talents. First it’s fun to visit with people who work in my industry and second, it’s nice to know at least one person in a town full of strangers.

Normally, I post about these visits right away and was planning to after the Vermont trip, except my blog broke and just got fixed today. So now I am playing catch up.

I found out on this trip that “Reliability Has a Voice” (and yes that tagline / slogan is now trademarked by Mary Catherine Jones).

Fellow Faffer and long time Burlington resident Mary Catherine Jones was so great about sharing her wonderful town with me. We met for lunch at a swell spot and she told me all about her voice-over career, the New England voice-over market as well as her husband and two great children.

She even told me she previously had tried to start a voice-over meet-up but that it didn’t come together. So let me put all the Vermont VO’s on notice – connect with Mary Catherine, who is super bright (Ivy League – unheard of in VO 馃槈 ) and really nice. Get your Vermont Voice-Over meet up group going like we have in Buffalo and you’ll be really glad you did.

Thank you Mary Catherine for sharing Burlington with me. It’s a really nice spot and I hope to get there again someday.
