Vincent entered the adult film industry in 1998.[1] She initially used the stage name "Jewel Valmont" until 2000 when she changed it to "Ava Vincent."[6] Later that year, she filmed a couple of B movies titled Illicit Temptations and Hollywood Fantasies and was reportedly signed to do another one titled Sexual Intentions.[5] She also had a small role in Fast Sofa in which she has simulated sex with Jennifer Tilly, whose character in the film is a porn star.[5] While working at Suzy's, Ava met Samantha Style, who was a customer. Samantha introduced Ava to Seymore Butts, who directed Ava's first scene.[3]

Vincent was among the adult industry workers interviewed in 2001 for Fluffy Cumsalot, Porn Star, a mainstream documentary film about the origin of porn stage names.[7]
