Miner's television credits include Vickie in Shining Time Station: 'Tis a Gift (1990), Michelle Bauer on Guiding Light (1989–1995), a guest starring role as Laurel in a Sex and the City episode, "Twenty-something Girls vs. Thirty-something Women" (1999) and Astrid in NY-LON (2004).
From 2009 to 2013, Miner played the Meg Masters demon in Supernatural. She first appeared in "Sympathy for the Devil", the Season 5 premiere and Episode 10 "Abandon All Hope". She reprised the role in Season 6's "Caged Heat" and Season 7's "The Born-Again Identity", with further appearances in "Reading is Fundamental" and the season finale "Survival of the Fittest". She appeared again in Season 8's "Goodbye Stranger". The role was intended to be larger, but Miner suffered a back injury while filming "Caged Heat" that prevented her from doing more physical material.
Among her theater credits are Jennifer in Laura Cahill's Naked Faith: The Way at Naked Angels in New York (1994), Margot Frank (replacing original cast member Missy Yager) in The Diary of Anne Frank on Broadway (1997), Rivkele in Donald Margulies's adaptation of Sholem Asch's God of Vengeance at ACT Theatre in Seattle (2000), Sandy in Rebecca Gilman's Blue Surge at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago (2001) and at The Public Theater in New York (2002).
A third-generation Miner in show business, she is the daughter of director and teacher Peter Miner and the granddaughter of director/producer Worthington Miner and actress Frances Fuller. In 1998, she married Home Alone actor Macaulay Culkin. The marriage ended in divorce four years later.
In 2012 she began suffering from multiple sclerosis, severely affecting her career. Her character Meg from Supernatural was killed off at her own request.
