Today she has chalked up credits to such animated works as Penguins of Madagascar and continues to be in the forefront of some of the industries greatest animated TV shows and films. The two have worked for all the major industry companies you can think of like Disney, Warner Bros, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Hanna Barbera, and are looking forward to see where BiBee, a character based on a story written by Author David Seuss will be taken.
