Biography

DeLisle was born in Fort Ord, California, to truck driver George Van Oosbree and singer Joanna Ruth. She is of Dutch, French, Irish, Mexican and Norwegian descent. Her parents separated when she was young. She has one younger brother. DeLisle's mother became a born-again Pentecostal when she was eleven and she was later raised by her maternal grandmother, Eva Flores, a vocalist who performed with salsa musician Tito Puente. She credits her father's love of country music as the biggest influence on her musical taste. In her late teens, she started singing old gospel tunes, and entered the world of stand-up comedy on the advice of a friend. In her comedy routine, DeLisle imitated voices. Her impressions earned the attention of a casting director and was advised to take up voice acting. At this time, she went back to her musical ambitions but also took classes in voice-overs. She soon began working with talent agent Sandy Schnarr.

One of her most notable roles is that of Daphne Blake. DeLisle first voiced the character in the direct-to-video movie Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase, which she inherited from her friend and teacher Mary Kay Bergman following the latter's suicide. In an August 2010 interview, She spoke of Bergman: "It was an interesting turn of events to get to play Daphne, but I'm so glad that I have the role, and I was glad that I was able to carry that on for her. She set the bar very high." What's New Scooby-Doo was the first series to feature DeLisle as Daphne.

In 2002, she married Murray Hammond of the country band Old 97's; their courtship and wedding were featured in an episode of A Wedding Story.
