About Rebecca

Rebecca Thomas has been involved in the performing arts as performer, presenter, crew, or producer more often than not since she was very young. The arts, be it through dancing, singing, production, or voiceover, have always given her a space to explore, learn, and create, and to be part of something that can promote a love of stories and a willingness to explore new worlds, ideas, and experiences. 

For years, people qualified to know encouraged her to try voiceover. She always refused because drama was her weakest performing art in school. In 2011, every single area of her life tanked, and then she received a reminder that she had never given voice acting a fair shot. So, figuring one more rejection wouldn't kill her and she could finally prove once and for all she wasn't cut out for voiceover, she auditioned for the Washington Talking Book & Braille Library...and got in almost immediately. She started with narration because she enjoys reading, has a history of reading to students over most of her teaching career, and loves the idea of making stories more widely accessible to a society that supposedly has stopped reading.

Being an avid reader, relatively open minded, and unafraid can open the most interesting doors. So can practice, persistence, and hard work. After pursuing a degree in education with the intention of becoming a museum educator, she merged her performing skills into several years of teaching in museums, planetaria, and after school programs, and then combined her teaching and production skills to create a YouTube EDU channel. These days, she narrates and plays a variety of characters she finds interesting in the hopes of entertaining and informing listeners, and shares voiceover-related material on social media and blogs about her own experiences in the hopes of inspiring others to pursue their own paths.

Unique traits: Former museum docent; curriculum designer; trainer; ballerina; singer; and stage crew.
