She made her film debut in "Molly Pitcher" (1911), and made several films with Kalem Studios before freelancing with Goldwyn, Famous Players, Metro, and First National. She was best known for "Seven Keys to Baldpate" (1917), "Miss Nobody" (1926), and "The Greater Glory" (1926). As with many of her contemporaries, her career faded with the advent of sound film.
