Lisa Ortiz (born December 11, 1974) is an American theatre and voice actress, as well as voice director, best known for her roles in English anime adaptations. She is perhaps best known for the roles of the high-elf Deedlit in Record of Lodoss War, Lina Inverse in Slayers, Oshawatt in Pokémon and Tony Tony Chopper in the 4Kids dub of One Piece. Her extensive résumé also includes the role of Amy Rose in Sonic X, and Serenity Wheeler in Yu-Gi-Oh!. She has voiced Amy Rose in the Sonic the Hedgehog series of video games from Shadow the Hedgehog to 2010, as the successor to voice actress Jennifer Douillard, who voiced the character from Sonic Adventure to Sonic Advance 3. Living in New York City and frequently meeting people who speak other languages, Ortiz helps in creating the dialect voices for which she is well recognized.[1] Ortiz holds a BFA in theatre from Hofstra University. She has appeared in titles for NYAV Post, 4Kids Entertainment, Central Park Media, Funimation Entertainment, Headline Studios, TAJ Productions, and DuArt Film and Video. At the 2002 Katsucon in National Harbor, Maryland, Lisa admitted that her start in voice overs came from her brother stealing her car, which led to series of adventures that led her to meeting a friend to retrieve the car, who then invited her to a casting call for Record of Lodoss War.

Lisa is the President of Noise of O Productions, LLC an audio post house and has directed for various games and animation, including Modern Combat 5 and Super 4 Playmobile.

She is sometimes assumed to have been a cast member of the Canadian television show Fifteen, however, she confirmed in a podcast interview that she did not appear, and that it was actually another Lisa Ortiz.[2]
