Bloom was born in Boston, Massachusetts and grew up in Connecticut and Florida. The daughter of a high school guidance counselor and businessman/college professor, Bloom graduated from Princeton University in 2004 with a Bachelor's Degree in Architecture. In 2003, she placed third in Maxim magazine's Hometown Hotties,. though she has declined offers for similar shots with other magazines. She became interested in acting when a fellow student at Princeton where she went to school asked her to star in a short film. She also performed on stage with an innovative dance company called "diSiac" and starred in other student projects while attending Princeton. Her junior year studio work was later published by one of her Princeton professors in 2005 in the respected Architectural Journal "30 60 90 09: Regarding Public Space."
In her spare time, Bloom enjoys mentoring young people and tutors middle and high school students. She also likes running and hiking.
Vail played the role of assistant district attorney for Genoa City Heather Stevens on the CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless from 2007 to 2010, a role that she received a Daytime Emmy nomination for in 2008. She was first downgraded to recurring status during the summer of 2009, and left on her own in early 2010, and her role was recast. In March 2009, she appeared on the web series Angel of Death.
