She started her film acting career in 1910, having a supporting role in the film The Actor's Children, starring Frank Hall Crane, as well as an early film version of Uncle Tom's Cabin, which also starred Crane and early child actress Marie Eline. She starred in fifteen films that year, almost all opposite Crane, to include She Stoops to Conquer, and The Two Roses again opposite Marie Eline and again, Frank Hall Crane. Her last film appearance was in the 1911 film Cinderella, starring Florence La Badie and Frank Hall Crane.

Following her departure from film acting, she married George Jenkins Tompkins of Brooklyn N.Y., a NYC policeman of English/Irish descent.
