A Musical Spectacular” for several years at the Disney California Adventure. She also trained in improv comedy and sketch comedy, but wanting to gain more mainstream opportunities, she then opted to go find film and television projects. This led her to become the host of the Disney Channel show, “Disney 365”, a news segment that airs mostly during commercial breaks on the channel, the successor to “Disney 411” and airing exclusive content. As a part of the show, she interviews Disney Channel personalities, or showcases behind the scenes footage to update viewers about what is going on within Disney.

Her talents in hosting led her to try her hand at voice work, in which she voices characters from various animated shows, mostly anime from Japan which need English dubbing. She then became a regular voice of many popular anime dubs, including “Sao Alternative: Gun Gale Online” which is based on the light novel series of the same name. She also lent her voice in “Miraculous Ladybug”, which is a CGI superhero animated series created by Toei animation in Japan. She voiced a character in the show “Yo Kai Watch” too, which is based on the manga series, video games, and toys of the same name.
Aside from her animated voice work, Reba started her own on-line talk show on YouTube called “LittleBit Tipsy”, in which she and a few of her friends talk about various topics while slightly tipsy. She started the show in 2018 and uploaded around two to three episodes in a month. The show gained some popularity, and has around 70 subscribers.
In terms of her voice-over work, some of her most notable characters include Clovis in “Zak Storm: Super Pirate” which is a children’s television series which airs on Discovery Family, and she also voiced Ponzu in the English dub of the show “Hunter x Hunter”, which is based on the manga series of the same name created by Yoshihiro Togashi. She worked on “Knights of Sidonia” too, which is a space opera and manga show based on the manga series by Tsotumu Nihei.
