Is probably best known for her role as the patient and sensible girlfriend of Christopher Titus, Erin Fitzpatrick in the sitcom Titus (2000).
Throughout the latter part of season two of Titus (2000) she was pregnant with twins, her character Erin was not meant to be pregnant, so the fact was often disguised by having her standing behind objects, holding things in front of her (flowers, pillows, wedding dresses in garment bags, etc.), being filmed from above the waist, wearing dark clothes, as well as a plot line that involved her character being in a wheelchair.
Pleaded guilty to drunken driving in Hawaii [January 12, 2006].
