"I met Simone (her voice anyway) when I needed to portray a modern-day woman: strong, with an attitude, in charge of her own life, but at the same time sweet, feminine, and delicate. And it worked. Simone's voice gave life to everything I had imagined. Over time I started recording more and more commercials with Simone, as well as promos for my radio program. Without a doubt Simone is my favorite female voice. She is eclectic. With the simple change of tone she can get where we want to go. She's like my character. Strong and sweet."
Sérgio Scarpelli (Creative Director at Publicis Brasil)
"They say a good producer isn't the one who knows what to do, but the one who has the phone number of the one who knows what to do. So you better have Simone's number. She's an amazing actress and voiceover talent, Upbeat by nature, smart, and above all a super professional who plays by the book. She gets it done and she's a genuinely nice person. Don't have her number? Write it down."
