    She bears an uncanny likeness to Denny Dillon.
    She was shy in high school so to help her mom gave her a choice - take shop or drama (she chose drama).
    A casting director once told her, 'You're not going to be an're not fat enough to be the really fat girl, and you're not thin enough to be the pretty girl.'
    Her first paid acting job was for a Diet Dr. Pepper commercial.
    Though a computer genius on 'Criminal Minds' in real life she was clueless, didn't own one and had to use her mother's with friends giving her a crash course.
    She graduated with a theatre degree from California State University, Fullerton.
    Between acting gigs she supplemented her income as a substitute teacher, child counselor, restaurant hostess, grant writer and personal assistant for an actress.
    She likes to write and her work has been published in the Los Angeles Times Magazine.
    Her 'Criminal Minds' character was supposed to be a one episode event, but tested so positive she was written into subsequent scripts.
    She likes to swap dumb jokes with fellow cast members and makes mixed CDs for on-screen flame Shemar Moore.
