Her first adult on-screen role was a minor one in the 1994 made-for-TV movie Menendez: A Killing in Beverly Hills.

In 1999 she landed the major role of FDNY paramedic Kim Zambrano, appearing as a regular cast member in the first five seasons, as well as in the first and last episodes of Season 6, in 2005.
She played the same character in a crossover with medical drama ER, appearing in the 2002 episode entitled "Brothers and Sisters" (Season 8, Episode 19).
She made her feature film debut in the 2002 movie Martin & Orloff, and since then has appeared in Mind the Gap (2004), Keep Your Distance (2005), Night at the Museum (2006), and Prisoner (2007).
