Hi, I'm Jessica Hansen.
For 8 years, I was on air hourly on NPR.
For 8+ years, I was the Voice of NPR's Funding Credits, heard by up to 55 million people each week. I coach voice for NPR, TV and radio stations, corporations, podcast hosts, journalists, and other private clients.
As a Voice Coach, I help people who use their voices professionally, SOUND LIKE THEMSELVES, on their BEST DAY, at PERFORMANCE LEVEL, so that they CONNECT with the people they want to reach.
I’m passionate about helping people feel AT HOME IN YOUR VOICE, especially those voices who have historically been marginalized.
I have performed in television, film, stage, voiceovers, and commercials, including guest star roles on NBC’s Parks & Recreation and HBO’s Veep, working with Amy Poehler and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, on stages across the country and in dozens of commercials and industrial training films.
I've taught children and adults of all ages from Shakespeare to musical theater to microphone and audition techniques.
I live in Washington, DC with my partner and my teen daughter.
