Rebecca is a study in contrasts…a palette of incongruous juxtapositions.
In one moment, she is meticulous, analytical, and articulate, and in the next an ethereal fairy, with the age and wisdom to know all the best stories… and share them with you.
40+ years as a professional violinist has given her a deep appreciation for the music of language as well as the ability to learn, be directed, and pick up dialects and accents. 14 years as an oncology massage therapist and hospice volunteer has helped to develop a facility with medical and technical terminologies, plus a voice that just oozes bedside manner.
With a voice that has been described as curious, intellectual, optimistic, and comforting, she loves to narrate nonfiction history, memoirs, wellness and meditation, and anything that celebrates and empowers women in the fields of science, medicine, mathematics, and music. She also enjoys horror, speculative fiction, and historical fiction.
When not in the booth, Rebecca practices meditation and yoga, as well as hiking, biking, and exploring all the natural beauty of the Idaho home she shares with her husband and their two cats.

That was certainly an enthralling read. I loved your performance. Joyce
was perfectly creepy and humanized, and all the more creepy for it.
Seriously A+ work!"

"[Rebecca] conveys the moment-to-moment, extemporaneous spontaneity of the prose so well!
It felt effortless and fun to hear you narrate.
You’ve got a visceral sense, a special sense of fun and ease that made me feel like you weren’t thinking about anything but the
moments you got to play in."
~ Ivuoma Hall, Learning Ally Producer
"Rebecca Stern’s voice is clear, crisp, and evokes emotion. Her voice fits with the subject matter and I found myself visualizing the story as she narrated. She propels the plot with perfect pacing and immersive vocal inflections. I got engrossed in the story so that when it ended, I wanted it to keep going!"
~ N. N. Light’s Book Heaven, April 2022 review for "The Girl with Ten Diamonds"
“Rebecca’s precision to sound and her background in music and performance really translates to technical vocal precision.”
