Possessing skills in gymnastics, Holt was cast in Disney XD's martial arts comedy Kickin' It, which premiered on June 13, 2011.[10] She played the role of Kim in the series, as a main character in seasons 1–3, and as a special guest on three episodes in season 4.[11] She starred in the 2012 Disney Channel Original Movie Girl vs. Monster, playing the lead character Skylar Lewis, a teenager who discovers that her family have long worked as monster hunters, and she's next in line.[12] She left Kickin' It as a regular after season 3 to star in the Disney Channel half-hour comedy series I Didn't Do It, which premiered on January 17, 2014. The series follows five friends, including Holt's character, Lindy Watson, a nerdy athletic outcast.[13] The series ended on October 16, 2015, after two seasons.[14][15] In January 2017 Holt was cast as Tandy Bowen, one of the lead characters, in the upcoming Freeform/Marvel Comics television series Marvel's Cloak & Dagger.[16][17]

Holt recorded three songs for the 2012 film Girl vs. Monster, in which she also starred. The songs were featured on the compilation Make Your Mark: Ultimate Playlist. She won a 2013 Radio Disney Music Award for Best Crush Song for "Had Me @ Hello", which was featured in the film.[13] She also recorded a cover version of "Winter Wonderland" for the 2012 Disney Channel Holiday Playlist album.[24] Her song "Carry On" was the theme song for the 2014 Disneynature film Bears.[18]

In October 2014, Holt signed a record deal with Hollywood Records.[1] Her debut single, "Phoenix", came out on May 13, 2016. The music video was released on June 23, 2016.[25][26] Olivia, her debut EP, was released on July 15, 2016.[23][27]

In 2016, Holt went on her first tour, the Rise of a Phoenix Tour, with Ryland Lynch, Isac Elliot and Forever in Your Mind.[28] She and Forever in Your Mind also performed at the 2016 TJ Martell Family Foundation Day in Los Angeles on October 9, 2016.[29]
