Career overview[edit]

Rogers' most famous roles are the more than 50 that she has voiced for Pokémon.[1] Rogers has also appeared as the voice of Chicky, the Kid Chicken for KFC; a talking teddy bear for FAO Schwarz, and as a bungee-jumping gum pellet for Trident White.

Rogers says she has been "doing funny voices" for as long as she can remember. She was interested in acting from an early age, relishing her performances in school plays from kindergarten through college. Her first media job was as an NBC page in Rockefeller Center. She moved on to a successful graphic arts career, but her dream of working as a professional actor remained.

With the help of a vocal coach, Maddie Blaustein, Rogers made her first cartoon-voice demo in 1990 and was almost immediately discovered. She was cast as a bratty little kid in a tolerance public service announcement. It was produced by the cartoonist, animator, writer and businessman Joe Young (Scruples), starred Richie Havens and featured music by Stevie Wonder. Her first TV series was Nickelodeon's U2U. Rogers played "all the high pitched voices for the cartoons" (Jerry Lobozzo voiced all the deep ones).

Rogers is best known for her inventive and wacky portrayals as well as her wide vocal and emotional range. In addition to voice acting, she teaches workshops and performs for charities.
