Elissa Weinzimmer is a vocal health educator, presence coach, and the founder of Voice Body Connection. Her work is aimed toward empowering people to access and share their authentic voices more fully.
Elissa’s unique approach is to dive into the mechanics of vocal production, so clients and students can communicate with more confidence and ease. She uses this anatomically focused and mindset-based approach in her online courses “How Your Voice Works” and “How To Sound Like Yourself,” in her “Speak With Your Whole Self” workshop series for businesses and individuals, and in her women’s circle movement “Fembodiment.”
Elissa’s clients include Broadway stars, major television personalities, politicians, and CEOs. She has coached clients for TED talks and appearances on the Today Show, and has led workshops for Microsoft, Instacart, Hillary for America, the Columbia School of Public Health, The Voice Foundation, and the Body-Mind Centering Association. She is also a resident presence expert for Femgineer, a master voice teacher at Anthony Meindl’s Actors Workshop, and on the faculty at the New York Film Academy and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.
Elissa holds an MFA in Theatre Voice Pedagogy from the University of Alberta and a BA from the University of Southern California. She is the Founding Official Instructor of Vibrant Voice Technique, and is certified in Fitzmaurice Voicework® and Hatha yoga. In 2014, She was the recipient of the Clyde Vinson Award for Excellence from the Voice and Speech Trainers Association.
