Meet Tonya, Professional Voiceover Actress
Hi! My name is Tonya Simmons. My first career was as a elementary school teacher in Denver, CO and in Chicago, IL. I taught pre-school through 3rd grade. But, then in 2007, I enrolled in an acting class that literally changed my life. After my first class, I began investing in many acting classes. Shortly afterwards, I studied voiceover, experiencing extraordinary success! As you can imagine, I was hooked! So hooked that I studied acting at various acting schools, and voiceover with coaches in Chicago and Los Angeles. I became obsessed with the art of acting. The obsession has paid off handsomely.
Fast Forward to the Present
Today, I am a professional voiceover talent and actress. I have appeared in film projects, and theatrical productions in the Chicago area. My voice can be heard in various commercials locally and across the nations. When I am not on stage, I concentrate my efforts on helping companies by using my voice to promote their businesses. During my spare time, I enjoy outings with my daughter, eating at restaurants, exercising, yoga, reading, shopping, and blogging on my website smartandsnazzykids.com.
