Early life[edit]

Pongetti was born in Kingsville, Texas and soon thereafter moved to Clear Lake, a suburb of Houston, Texas.[1] Her father was a chemical engineer and her mother taught mathematics at Arizona State University. Pongetti graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 1992 and moved to Los Angeles.[1]


Pongetti performed in the band Those Who Dig. She began work in Los Angeles as an assistant to writers on the TV Series Roseanne in 1995. Thereafter, she began doing improvisational comedy at The Groundlings Theater. She has also performed music that was used in the TV series Gilmore Girls ("My Little Corner of the World", episode "Pilot") and My Boys (episode "Dinner Party"), as well as helping to write and perform a song used in the movie Van Wilder ("Do-Si-Do").

After dabbling in music, writing and theater, Pongetti devoted herself full-time to acting starting in late 2002.[1] Since that time, she has performed in a variety of commercial and theatrical television roles.

Pongetti has been featured on HGTV's Rate My Space having her living room redesigned.[episode needed]
