Tanja Milojevic

as Whitney

Tanja.jpgI’m a friendly fun-loving personality who enjoys meeting new people, making friends, and being creative. Originally from Serbia, I’m lucky to be living in a city where transportation is easy to come by and travel with my lovely guide dog Nabu. At work I produce braille for many different clients and at home I enjoy recording voice overs! I’m a recent graduate of UMass Boston with a Masters in Vision Rehab Therapy (Who really uses their degree these days). My supportive friends and I enjoy going to the movies, visiting new restaurants, going on adventures where we can find them and letting our dogs interact. I feel that my purpose is to voice act and it’s an escape for me which I look forward to each and every time I sit behind the microphone. The Audio Drama community at this point feels like my family and it’s an honor to be included in this amazing talented and thriving group! Podcasts of all kinds fill my commutes and make them bearable. It should also be mentioned that I enjoy buying electronics and have a huge collection of audio dramas, audio books, audio described films, and random recordings from my life. I confess, I’m an audio hoarder but only on my external hard drive.
