Yael was born into an English & Spanish speaking household in Chicago and then moved to the small island of Manhattan *cue Rhapsody in Blue by George Gershwin* where she was raised. She studied Drama at LaGuardia Arts High School where she received the Father Fame Award, and continued her education at The Boston Conservatory where she graduated Cum Laude with her BFA in Musical Theater. Based in New York, Yael took Advanced Improv classes at UCB and Musical Improv classes at The Magnet. She enjoys collaborating and keeping busy. You will often find her working on a new project, and finding new spots to eat in and around the city!
Some of her hobbies include: Traveling, beat-boxing, playing Bop-IT, and cooking. She also looks up to the great comedians Carol Burnett, Gilda Radner, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Robin Williams, Will Ferrell, and Fred Armisen...to name a few.

NEWS AND EVENTS
Beyond thrilled and grateful to be a scholarship recipient of this years eVOcation conference!!
"We are unique among voiceover conferences in that we are focused entirely on the business of voiceover. From practical day to day aspects, to macro career moves and everything in between."
I am excited to be freelancing with Ingber and Associates for commercial VO!
THE DAPHNE PROJECT by Alec Tibaldi and Zora Crews made its premier at the Portland International Film Festival in March 2021.
"The Daphne Project is a heightened version of the experience of Daphne, the only woman of color in a production. It’s alienating realizing you’re the only person of color in the room. It creates a sense that one: you should be grateful just to be included, and two: you’ve been granted permission to enter a space that was not made for you, so you have to show up, you have to be the best and prove yourself."
Had an absolute blast taking Andy Roth's 5-week VO course!
What a delight it has been to be a virtual Trivia/Game host for Coursehorse! I love bringing a little bit of joy and respite to these Fortune 500 companies and connecting friends and colleagues who are stuck at home.
