About Celia Siegel Management
Successful entrepreneurs know that top achievers have a team to elevate their success, meet yours!
No matter where you are in your voiceover career, my team and I can help you build and market your standout brand, make sound business choices and strategize for success. Before founding & building CSM, I was a top West Coast talent agent (CESD). The fact that I am also a certified business and life coach comes in handy in many ways for my clients’ emotional and financial well-being.
I help talent identify when taking classes and auditioning has become a full-time job instead of the actual paying work, and how they can fix that by turning activity into a powerful career. My multi-leveled expertise and extensive knowledge of the ever-changing voiceover industry helps voice actors across the globe grow their VO business and take their careers to the next level.

A passionate believer in the power of storytelling to change lives, connect communities and spark action, Heidi Raschke grew up hearing incredible tales told by an ever-changing cast of characters from around the world — characters with names like Mad Dog Vachon, The Crusher, Larry the Ax, and Andre the Giant. This was one of the true delights of being the child of professional wrestler Baron Von Raschke. She relished in the laughs, inspiration and appreciation that came from connecting to others in this way — and she realized early on that everyone had a fascinating story if you bothered to find out. She decided to become a writer. She studied journalism at the University of Minnesota, and became an editor, working at a variety of publications for more than 20 years. During this time, she led many teams of storytellers to innovate, reach new audiences and attract new revenue using both traditional and digital media. She launched magazines, websites, e-newsletters and Twitter feeds. She edited award-winning blogs and stories. She even wrote a viral essay about her prom experience called “Prom Gone Wrong.” After editing.
