Attending UCLA and receiving voice coaching from Mr. Butler she was working hard to hone her craft. She was able to read for a part on the Tracy Ullman shows animated short segments by Matt Groenig. That series of short segments was spun off by Fox becoming The Simpsons, and the rest is now the longest running animated feature in television history.

Ms. Cartwright gives an excellent account of the process for creating a animated show and the hard work needed to make it happen. She is doing other voices besides those on The Simpsons. In addition, she is an actress, a writer and a runs her own production company. She has formed her own company to expand her career and manage numerous new projects. She is married and has two children and still lives in Los Angeles.
