She had a recurring role in the 1993-94 season of the TV drama L.A. Law.

She has appeared in independent films like Inside Monkey Zetterland and Nowhere but has also dabbled in mainstream attempts like Batman and her short-lived sitcom "Temporarily Yours." (The sitcom was about a woman who, in an attempt to get a good apartment in New York, lies about being employed with a temp agency and then shows up at the agency begging for work.)
