Whether you are just getting started or already a pro, join Kathleen Puls Andrade for an intensive look at the Voiceover industry at the Second City Training Center, Chicago, and learn the skills needed to make it in this competitive field. Check out my classes below.

"Kathleen is a school admin's dream teacher, delivering well-designed classes and student care that make my job so much easier. Our students give her courses rave reviews and enroll in advancing class levels at a higher rate than the norm. She's a self-starter that always sets out to overcome any obstacles or tasks that may arise and does so in a timely manner. Highly creative artists with top-notch organizational skills are a rare find and Kathleen excels at both! "
