She has also made appearances on stage, including Neil LaBute's "Some Girl(s)" at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles. She participated in the productions of "Blade to the Heat" and "Black Butterfly" at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. She was the first replacement for Andrea Burns in Broadway's "In the Heights."

In 2003, she appeared in the music video for TLC's song "Damaged", the third single from their final studio album 3D, as a young woman trapped in an abusive relationship and unsure of what to do with her life. In 2009, she appeared in 9 episodes as Claudia Diaz, Archie Morris's Girlfriend and police officer in "ER". In 2010 she appeared in the Los Angeles run of "Love, Loss and What I Wore."
