Chloe Barrett

Digidentistry

Julia has been extremely professional in her approach to working together. As a start up we require open minded, enthusiastic people with a strong skill set. Julia recorded and edited our content into audio for our 3D visual learning tools. The result was precise and exactly how it was promised. One thing I liked was Julia's past expertise in Dentistry, allowing us to receive the audio spoken with the correct terminology. I found the experience reliable and will continue to work with Julia on our other projects. I would recommend Julia Meola to people who need audio content.

Jamie Thompson

Rabbit in the Headlights

I was lucky enough to work with Julia on a hard hitting piece of Radio Drama. In the studio it became clear Julia was a model professional, who took direction like an actor at the very top of their game. Her depth of characters and vocal range is phenomenal and her delivery is razor sharp. Above all, Julia was a pleasure to work with.
