Her first major roles came with a guest spot on the Lifetime series Angela's Eyes and a minor role in the indie movie Charlie Bartlett.[2] She started dating singer and actor Tyler Hilton after meeting him on the set of Charlie Bartlett.[3]

Park completed a guest starring role on the popular Disney channel Family show Life with Derek as Amy, a love interest of Derek and head cheerleader ex-girlfriend to Max. Her largest role to date has been in the ABC Family series The Secret Life of the American Teenager, where she plays one of the main characters, Grace Bowman, a conservative Christian teen and cheerleader who, along with her boyfriend, struggle with her purity vow until marriage.[2]
