Kathleen McInerney[2], known professionally as Veronica Taylor, (born December 4, 1965) is an American voice actress[3] known for her dubbing work in English-language adaptations of Japanese anime, in particular for voicing Ash Ketchum in the Pokémon anime for the first eight seasons.

Early life[edit]

Having always wanted to act since she was in her first play when she was five, Taylor went to The Catholic University of America and Brandeis University to learn acting.


She was featured in numerous plays and toured with National Players under the leadership of William H. (Bill) Graham, who was the Chairman of Catholic U's Drama Department,[4] and other stage companies in the Washington, D.C. area and other cities all around the United States for a few years before settling in New York.[5]

Her other roles include Delia Ketchum, May, and Ash (4Kids dub) in the Pokémon anime meta series, April O'Neil from the 2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, Amelia Wil Tesla Seyruun in the Slayers TV series, voice of Mangchi in the English dub of Hammerboy, the voice of Nico Robin in the 4Kids dub of One Piece,[3] and the voice of Sailor Pluto in the Viz Media dub of Sailor Moon and Sailor Moon Crystal.[6]

Taylor has also lent her voice to narrate audio books written by Judy Blume, Wendy Mass, Danielle Steel, Linda Castillo, Louise Erdrich and Mary Kay Andrews among others.[4] She has also narrated for Gayle Foreman.[7]

Personal life[edit]

She has one daughter born in 1998.[8] They were formerly based in New York City, New York, but as of 2015, she relocated to Los Angeles, California.

Taylor has developed a strong tie to Washington, D.C.: playing women's soccer for the Catholic University Cardinals[4] and being a Redskins fan. Both of her parents attended Catholic University and toured with National Players as well.[4]
