Meet Amy Vanderoef, Emcee, Host, Professional Voice-over artist

Today we’d like to introduce you to Amy Vanderoef.

Amy, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I love to answer this question… because sharing a piece of my journey, saying it out loud, invigorates me! It reminds me of how far I have come, and how blessed I am. I have been a Media Personality in Dallas for over a decade. I made a bold move to leave my comfy on-air position at WFAA and start my own business. I have found so much joy and happiness as a freelance talent. Not only do I make more money, but I am using all parts of my God-given talents and giftings. And as a single Mom, with no family for thousands of miles… I need the flexibility!

Currently, I am a part-time Co-Host for Morning Dose, a nationally syndicated news program on CW-33. I’m also a contributor for the Dallas Morning News, sharing intimate, behind the scene moments of people of public interest. We go to the subjects house, and we share a glimpse of their home life. I’m really proud of these stories and their fans love them.

I MC a ton of live events. I am a professional voice-over artist, and a paid brand ambassador/media influencer. Life is full and so so good! 😉

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Progress is never a smooth road. I’ve been through really dark seasons. Divorce and leaving my job had me reeling for a long time. I am happy to say, I am the happiest, I’ve been in a long time.

Please tell us about Amy Vanderoef.
I am a well known trusted brand in Dallas. My audience/following is all Dallas-based. Those two factors make me a desirable influencer and brand representative for DFW clients.

Giving back is a big part of my heart. I am involved with countless non-profits, serving as Emcee for so many events. Last month, I made a life-changing trip to Ethiopia to visit Seeds of Africa, a school whose mission is near and dear to my heart.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
I grew up in New York and Connecticut. I have a large family, 5 kids in total. My parents have been married for 52 years. My childhood was happy and loud! Lots of people in the house always… and it’s what I miss the most living in Dallas. It’s just me and my son, I travel A LOT to stay connected to family and friends… it’s truly my passion.
