Aricka Parent

Feminine, Soothing, versatile

Hi! I'm Aricka (pronounced like Erika) and I am a part Icelandic and Latinx audiobook narrator. I have always loved getting lost in a story and bringing an author's words to life since I was a little girl and made everyone in my family act out my favorite stories or watch me act them out. I am a former music teacher and choir director, having graduated from the Ohio State University with a degree in Music Education. As a classically trained soprano, I can engage different tonalities and resonances for different characters and voices and I utilize my background and language classes (including Italian and French diction), to master different accents as well. I am conversational in Spanish and can read/ pronounce Icelandic. I am originally from Ohio but currently live in Virginia with my family and enjoy hiking and playing a variety of instruments. I enjoy narrating romance and romantic comedy - I love a good sarcastic heroine - though I also enjoy middle grade and thriller novels as well.

I am a member of SAG-AFTRA, PANA, and the APA, and participated in the APA mentorship program.
