Creator: Megan Hollingshead

Megan Hollingshead (September 22, 1968-) is a former New York voice actress who later moved to California. Her voice can go from suave and sultry to girly girl to strictly business. She worked on the 4Kids dubs of Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh! and others until 2006. She now works mostly with VIZ Media and Bang Zoom! Entertainment.

Her expertise in playing women who are sisterly, motherly, caring, or badass that expose cleavage make her the California equivalent for Kikuko Inoue. Her counterparts based on typecasts/vocal range are Lisa Ann Beley and Nicole Oliver for Canada, and Luci Christian, Carli Mosier, and Jamie Marchi for Texas. Her counterparts and spiritual successors for the New York area are Erica Schroeder and Eileen Stevens.
