As a successful performer and businesswoman with a dynamic personality, Kirsten has an enthusiastic charm. Her unique background of pharmaceutical marketing and performing helped her develop a business savvy and sophistication, yet also harness her talent and skills as an actress.
Kirsten received her B.A. in Psychology from Cornell University and studied acting at the William Esper Studio in New York. She began her career in pharmaceutical marketing, launching products and educating both consumers and physicians. She wrote press materials and new business proposals, and is accustomed to speaking to individuals and groups.
Kirsten’s segue back into performing began in 1998 when she landed her first job – the national voiceover for General Nutrition Centers. She quickly added Strawberry Jello and Godiva to her ‘menu’ of jobs,. Today, her repertoire includes a multitude of national campaigns, promos, children’s books and narrations for Lifetime, The Discovery Channel, The Smithsonian Channel, HBO and others.
In between voice gigs, Kirsten has also had success with on-camera commercial campaigns and has appeared in webisodes, performed in local community shows and continued her theatrical education with periodic classes at HB Studio, People’s Improv Theater and continued learning through private coaching.
Her most prized creations, however, are her four sons: Caleb, Simon, Oliver and Asher.
Kirsten grew up in the suburbs of New York City. She now lives back in the New York Metro region with her husband, Douglas, a pediatrician, and their family.
