In 2006 she portrayed Catherine Nyland, an archaeologist suffering from debilitating migraines in That Beautiful Somewhere, opposite Roy Dupuis. From 2005 to 2008 she had a recurring role as Alicia Plecas in the Canadian series Robson Arms, and in 2007 she appeared as Jenna Lane, a competitive ice skater hovering on the brink of a mental breakdown due to her controlling mother (portrayed by Rebecca De Mornay).
