Can you hear me?
On this week's episode we are chatting to the DELIGHTFUL Sammy Gunner, who only three years ago, decided to turn her unique voice from her insecurity into her SUPERPOWER!
First up, Chloe and Holly share their busy week with the listeners. Let's just say, they are both both feeling quite 'under the pump' right now; Chloe has started her Secondary Teaching Practicum and Holly is busy organising her honeymoon!! Exciting things are ahead ...... but right now their brains are feeling like mush.
Luckily, we get to cross to a wonderfully real chat with the powerhouse talent that is, Sammy Gunner! Sammy is a voice actor who specialises in character work and brings life to any project she works on! Sammy talks us through her 'past life' as a dancer, a door bitch and the huge world shift that comes with becoming a parent.
Sammy talks honestly about her mental health as she looks back on the year she had her beautiful baby AND bought a dance school .... adamant that she could do it ALL at the one time! She talks to Holly and Chloe about hitting rock bottom, and never wanting to talk again (cue enlightenment music), which was followed by a gentle push her from her husband to take part in a voice-acting workshop. The rest, they say, is history..... and this inspirational woman is now storming the Australian VO scene.
