Parady began her career in television with guest-appearances in Mannix and The Waltons. In 1976, she got the role of Alice Garvey in Little House on the Prairie, which she played until 1980, when her character was killed in a fire accidentally set by Albert Ingalls. Earlier in the series, in the 1976 episode Journey in the Spring, Paraday had played Eliza Anne Ingalls, Charles' sister-in-law. After Little House on the Prairie, she made only rare appearances in television, including Kenan & Kel.
Parady is also an actress in theatre. She was once married to Oscar-winning producer John Peverall (who recently died) and had one child with him. She is friends with Katherine MacGregor and Richard Bull. She was also close to Patrick Laborteaux who played her on-screen 'son'; Matthew Laborteaux; Dabbs Greer; Little House make-up artist Whitey; and hair master Larry Germain.
