Through studying flute for ten years, Marjorie found at a young age that her ear for musical tonality helped her hear similar tones in the languages she learned to speak. She is fluent in Spanish, and also speaks Mandarin, French, Italian, and a little Greek with what she calls “an American Tourist dialect.”
She is a proud member of SAG-AFTRA, Book Pals (SAG-AFTRA Foundation), Women in Film and Television Atlanta, New York Women in Film and Television, Louisiana Film and Entertainment Association (LFEA), and New Orleans Film Society.
Marjorie works as a voiceover coach and presents webinars in her signature script analysis and audition technique. She also freelances with many different talent agencies.
