About Heather Nichols

Hello! I would love to provide your project with a professional, no-hassle voiceover! I have worked as a professional actress on camera, and on the microphone, for over 15 years in various genres, and have trained in Voiceover, Comedy, Drama, Hosting, and Improvisation, so I bring a varied skillset to any project.

I am a 4x SOVAS Voice Arts Awards nominee!

I am Groundlings and Second City trained in improvisation, and have appeared on screen in shows like How I Met Your Mother, Workaholics, Suburgatory, The Bold & The Beautiful, and more. I have voiced over 300 projects in the past 2 years, ranging from national commercials to elearning and corporate narration. I am looking to expand my portfolio in animation and video games, and use my extensive acting training to bring your project to bring your project to life. 

Past clients have described me as: CONVERSATIONAL, BELIEVABLE, ARTICULATE, YOUTHFUL, PROFESSIONAL, CLEAR, WARM, AUTHENTIC, APPROACHABLE, INFORMATIVE, SMOOTH, KNOWLEDGABLE, ENGAGING, ENERGETIC, ANIMATED, FRIENDLY, and CONFIDENT. As you can see from my consistent 5 star reviews, I do not rest until my client is happy. I am responsive, professional, and a quick worker.
