- When she was hired, she was already a fan of RWBY. When Miles and Kerry learned this, they told her everything that was going to happen in Volume 3. By the time they'd finished, she was on the floor crying. They also created a Slack chat group called "Yssa Cries About RWBY", which contains her reactions to scripts and other RWBY material.
- She owns a double sided Sun Wukong body pillow. She also owns a copy of the Team SSSN fan posters from "New Challengers...", which she framed and got signed by the characters' voice actors.
- "Patty Berdioler", the name of the author of Ninjas of Love from "Ruby Makes Cookies", the first episode of RWBY Chibi, is a reference to Yssa.
- She is of Filipino descent.
