Acting, modeling and writing careers
She made a number of supporting acting appearances in the late 1970s and early 1980s, guest starring on shows such as The Love Boat, CHiPs, Nero Wolfe and Fantasy Island. She also was the first actress to play Marissa Mallory on the syndicated soap opera Rituals before Janice Heiden took over the role for the remainder of the run.
In 2013, she published a book called Till Human Voices Wake Us.
She was active in the Reagan family's actions against John Hinckley and the controversial CBS miniseries The Reagans. In November 2011, she launched "Beyond Alzheimer's", a support group which meets every Thursday evening at UCLA.
