About Us

A Brief History

Our Story

One summer day in 2008, Margo was distraught over a discussion with her daughter. As she drove home to New Hampshire after a visit to New York, she had a strong desire to be comforted by the sound of her late parents’ voices.

A few days later, she attended a funeral; another friend was brought to tears by the loss of the deceased friend’s laugh. Margo asked Al if there was a service or a product that could record a voice and preserve it forever as a private family library.

Within a year, Margo, Al, Brandano and their friend Eric Peterson, an experienced technology professional, opened a small office in downtown Exeter, NH and founded Remembered Voices, LLC, to capture the epic power of voice and timeless treasure of a story to: Comfort, Inspire, Teach, and Entertain for Generations.

In 2010, Remembered Voices renamed their service The Voice Library.

Artistic endeavors started out with film photography, building a darkroom while in school and shooting with medium format film. My love for design developed from there, working with colorization and collages using my photos. Now as a graphic designer my skills were honed by working for several creative agencys and publishing companies. When Kelly is not designing, you can probably find her running outside somewhere on the NH Seacoast..
