What my clients have to say
If you want to improve your overall voice performance, Catrina Poor is the coach you want to work with.
She has the ability to explain every single nuance when it comes to the art of speaking/singing,
no matter how abstract the matter at hand might appear.
I'm an academically trained conference interpreter
who has been working in the language business for over a decade,
and yet Mrs. Poor was able to provide me with an astonishing amount of new information
that helped me to improve my performances significantly.
To top it off, she is a very kind and funny person.

"Catrina Poor is a wonderful and passionate teacher,
whether it´s her acting, speech or Shakespeare classes.
She helped me navigate through complex plays and characters with her
