Voice Actors Wiki

She is perhaps best known for the roles of the high-elf Deedlit in Record of Lodoss War, Lina Inverse in Slayers, and Tony Tony Chopper in One Piece. Her extensive résumé also includes the role of Amy Rose in Sonic X, and Serenity Wheeler in Yu-Gi-Oh! She has voiced Amy Rose in the Sonic the Hedgehog series of video games from Shadow the Hedgehog to present, as the successor to voice actress Jennifer Douillard, who voiced the character from Sonic Adventure to Sonic Advance 3.

Living in New York City and frequently meeting people who speak other languages, helps in creating the dialect voices for which she is well recognized [2].
