I’m Heidi Culbertson

Voice-First Strategist | Consultant | Speaker | Founder @askmarvee

Passionate about VoiceFirst lifestyles for older adults, family and caregivers

Voice-First Strategy, Advisory & Design Services

We help companies, organizations and startups bring purpose-built, high-quality, voice-first experiences to the older adult population.  Our focus is to enable businesses to spend less time worrying about technology innovation or voice user interface design, and more time on their core business.

What is Voice-First?

Just as mobile became the primary way we interact with technology, we are now entering the beginning of a “voice-first” world. The evolution of Voice-First solutions, where the primary interface to technology is spoken, will have tremendous impact and is an ideal medium for communication to older adults, families and care providers.

Why Choose Us?

I’ve been fortunate to have spent the past 25 years at the forefront of emerging technologies; the wireless industry, mobile applications, social platforms and the Internet of Things; cultivating deep experience in innovation strategy, product design and user experience. The emergence of voice-assistant technology is already proving itself to be a more effective way of communicating than text-based messaging or email.  Our consulting team brings years of expertise in early technology adoption, voice-first solution design, personal caregiving experience, and an understanding of the trends impacting aging-in-place, senior living, and health & wellness. We provide expertise and guidance to begin your journey to extend your vision to voice.
