She has performed in a number of shows written and directed by John de Lancie.

Platt and husband Yuri Lowenthal founded in 2004, Monkey Kingdom Productions, an independent film production company which has produced two feature films including Lowenthal's Tumbling After, and mockumentary Con Artists.[1] Their production company also created, produced and featured them in 4 seasons of award-winning web-series Shelf Life Shelf Life WebSeries, which streamed on YouTube and is currently available as an app on iTunes.[1] Platt and Lowenthal also co-authored a book on voice-over called Voice-Over Voice Actor: What It's Like Behind the Mic.
