She attended Fox Chapel High School in suburban Fox Chapel, Pennsylvania, and took classes for three years at the University of Pittsburgh before leaving to pursue a modeling career in New York City.
Ostrosky worked as a model while in high school. She moved from Pittsburgh to New York City to pursue her modeling career and worked for several of the fashion houses in NYC in the early 2000s. Soon after her arrival in New York City, talent scouts began to take notice of her, and offered her small parts in movies and television ad campaigns.
Ostrosky received her first noticeable role as one of the daughters of Ben Stiller's supposed birth parents in the 1996 film Flirting with Disaster. She played a more prominent role four years later in the film Whipped, with Amanda Peet. Ostrosky has also appeared on television, appearing in the final season of G4 show Filter, and the Spike TV series Casino Cinema.

In 2014, Ostrosky-Stern wrote the children's book Yoda: The Story of a Cat and his Kittens about a Persian cat with a heart condition, that she and her husband rescued. Proceeds from the book went to support Bianca’s Furry Friends, a 15,000-square-foot, cage-free animal shelter at the North Shore Animal League, named after the couple's deceased bulldog. In 2015, Ostrosky-Stern wrote a sequel Yoda Gets a Buddy.
