  • She is the preferred voice actor for Meowth and James' Father on Behind the Voice Actors.com (with her predecessor Nathan Price coming in second and Jimmy Zoppi, her successor, coming in third).
  • She often stated that she'd try and make Meowth's screams sound similar to his Japanese voice actress Inuko Inuyama.
  • She originally auditioned for the role of James but instead it went to Ted Lewis, and later Eric Stuart.
  • The voice she used to voice Corphish is very similar to her parrot Jake's voice.
