Vera was born in Moscow and is a native Russian speaker. Her voice is clear, confident, engaging, warm and versatile. Vera’s voice can work across a wide range: for corporate messages, educational infomercials, lifestyle commercials and audio books. Vera also speaks accented English that draws the listener, not unlike that of a female Russian character in a Bond movie! Vera has an on-screen television and journalism background: she worked as a presenter for Russia’s Channel One network and as a TV reporter/producer for the Reuters news agency in Moscow, where she produced lifestyle reports in Russian. Vera has lived in London since 2008. She has pursued her interest in television and the performing arts by producing video stories on the Royal Ballet for Reuters’ Showbiz team.
