â€œItâ€™s been an amazing journey, and so meaningful. I feel like voice teachers and voice actors are the luckiest people alive. We get to live our passion every day and experience the joy of transformation every minute we are working.â€
Bos has loved singing since she grew up in South Dakota and later in Iowa and New Mexico.
Sheâ€™s always preferred singing and acting with others. â€œYou have so much more joy and emotional intensity with a group than alone. You get into the harmonies or the character with your voice and it is like you are a piece of the puzzle – a puzzle that canâ€™t be completed without you. You move sound around. You give it life. It is hard to have a bad day when youâ€™re painting with your voice.”
Bos enjoys being a voice instructor as much as singing and narrating. She sings at her Bellevue, WA church most Sundays. She also has a few songs available on Spotify and YouTube. Her voice studio and audiobook services do so well she always has waiting lists – a nice problem to have.
Sheâ€™s a board member for the Eastside Vocal Federated Music Club and serves as Northwest Regional Governor for the National Association of Teachers of Singing. She teaches and records at her independent studio in Bellevue.
With her kids now grown, Bos says she loves the opportunity to share music with others and encourage them to follow their dreams.
â€œLife has ups and downs. But through it all the vocal arts; singing and storytelling, carry us to higher heights and help us deal with the lows,â€ she said. â€œWe all carry this power with us every day, and having a life of bringing it out in others is such an amazing path to get to walk.â€
