Lisa Ortiz (born December 11, 1974[1]) is an American theatre and voice actress, best known for her roles in English anime adaptations. 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 2010, as the successor to voice actress Jennifer Douillard, who voiced the character from Sonic Adventure to Sonic Advance 3. She even continues her voice roles in Pokémon.

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].

She has worked on the properties of NYAV Post, 4Kids Entertainment, Funimation Entertainment, TAJ Productions, DuArt Film and Video, and Bang Zoom! Entertainment.

As a voice double

Lisa Ortiz has voiced several characters in the Pokémon series as a voice double for Tara Sands and Bella Hudson.
