She was born in Billings, Montana where she was also raised. After winning a beauty contest conducted in her hometown, she soon went to movie studios and received little trouble gaining roles, starting out as an extra in 1918. She was looked upon at one time as one of the screen's most promising newcomers.
During her career, she was mostly cast in comedies, something that would cause conflict between her and the directors and producers, for she wished to act in more dramatic roles, although still maintaining a great talent for provoking laughter.
She acted in a number of films throughout the 1920s and four small roles in the 1930s. It appears she returned one last time to the screen in the 1940 film Women Without Names. She was chosen as one of thirteen WAMPAS Baby Stars in 1923.
She was married to actor Carroll Nye.
