Her love of the art is infectious, and her vision for where we can steer the industry with regards to representation as well as depth in the stories we get to tell is inspiring. On top of all this, Cissy keeps the expectations of voice actors who are just starting out grounded, acknowledging this industry is competitive and actors have to invest time, energy, and money to make a path for themselves.
