Nan received an Earphones Award and garnered the “Best Audiobook of 2016” distinction for Mister Monkey by Francine Prose (with Kirby Heyborne). Her 20 plus years as a professional actress on stage, television and film translate into audiobook storytelling that is “richly observed,” “heartbreaking” and enables her to “smoothly shift to whatever character, time, or emotion she is portraying.”
Nan has narrated fiction and non-fiction titles in many genres for Penguin/RandomHouse, HarperCollins, Dreamscape, ChristianAudio and Audible. For a list of Nan’s recent audiobook titles, click here.
Nan is also the recipient of Los Angeles Drama Critics Award and L.A. Weekly Award for her performance on stage as Vivian Bearing in WIT by Margaret Edson. Other favorite stage roles include Rosalind in Shakespeare’s AS YOU LIKE IT and Dr. Katherine Brandt in 33 VARIATIONS by Moisés Kaufman.
Among Nan’s many appearances in front of the camera, she has enjoyed a recurring role on SWITCHED AT BIRTH, worked with Emmy-winner Tony Hale on the feature NOT THAT FUNNY, was killed by Jamie Kennedy in the opening of 4CLOSED with Marlee Matlin and Paul Sorvino and was reunited with her two kidnapped children on CRIMINAL MINDS.
In addition to her work in audiobooks, she has recorded radio/television commercials, video games and network promos too numerous to list. Originally from St. Paul, Minnesota, Nan received a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre with Honors from St. Cloud State University.
