With a sound as diverse as the global marketplace, Caron began her career by refusing to be quiet as a child. As interesting as she was disruptive, her teachers decided to give her more to do, starting with the school's first radio programming - the morning announcements. Unknowingly, she'd developed an entertaining format, using friends as correspondents for short segments about happenings at the school. This garnered the attention of the city's favorite Griot, who invited Caron to become a regular on her Saturday morning children's show on WEAA-FM in Baltimore. A love affair with broadcast and storytelling was born.
A veteran of the stage through classical voice and theater, she was determined to continue using her voice, with or without permission. Her studies of language, sound and literature continued to grow and developed into a career spanning three decades. Caron is an accomplished voice-over artist, specializing in long-form narration, audiobook production, education & training, medical narration and character work.
Caron is the host and producer of CARONISMShow radio & podcast, Love.Music.Pleasure, and is the voice of AZSoul Radio. She is a culture, film and entertainment critic, and consistently contributes to her community by mentoring, developing new talent, and supporting events to benefit various charitable organizations. She continues to be driven by her belief in the art, the artist and the pursuit of excellence.
With a love for new platforms and technology, her work as a multimedia journalist, photographer, and education leader has become a world where fresh ideas and innovation are welcome. Her voice is profound in a new generation of visionaries.
