Biography[edit]

Palencia was born and raised in Oklahoma.[3] As a child, Palencia lived in Honduras[6][7] until she was 4. Throughout her childhood she went back and forth between La Ceiba, Honduras and Owasso, Oklahoma.[1][2] Her brother, Gino Palencia, works at Funimation as an ADR engineer and production assistant.

Palencia eventually settled in Dallas, Texas. She graduated from Weatherford High School in 2002.[6] While studying at the University of North Texas (UNT), she was influenced by the anime series, Dragon Ball Z.[1] After graduating from UNT with a Bachelor of Arts in Music in 2006,[3][8] she began her career as a voice actress for Funimation.[1] Palencia was also a director, but eventually decided to become a full-time actress.[2]

Apart from her adult female voices, Palencia has been cast in younger male and female roles as well. She was formerly one of the hosts of GameStop TV and was seen in several independent films such as The Ladies of the House and Lumberjack Man.

The dub script is quite loyal to the subs. Palencia's performance really captures the character.
