You’ll often find Blythe behind the scenes helping others prep for speaking engagements, major product presentations, and an occasional news and reality show, but you can also hear her voiceover work in product and marketing videos for startups and major tech companies.
When not talking about communication, Blythe loves to talk about fitness (mostly running and yoga), reading (mostly detective fiction and Beat poetry), and wine (mostly Napa cabs). She also occasionally picks up her ukulele.
