Smith started off in theatre, having made her debut in Second Stage's Wildflower. She was cast for a sitcom on The CW directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino, tentatively titled Wyoming, but only a pilot was produced since the project was not picked up by the network. The pilot movie is called The Wyoming Story.
In 2010, Smith was cast to appear as Nell Jones on NCIS: Los Angeles. Initially planned to be only a recurring character, Smith's role was expanded to Main Cast after she impressed the producers with her acting.
In April 2015, Smith starred in and produced the short film, Baby, which premiered at SXSW Film Festival.
In May 2015, Smith won the SET Award for Portrayal of a Female in Technology. The award was presented by The Big Bang Theory's Mayim Bialik and EIC President/CEO Brian Dyak at the 2015 NCWIT Summit for Women and IT.
Smith was the Social Media Ambassador for CBS for the ACM Awards which aired on April 3, 2016.
Smith and director C.A. Gabriel directed their first feature film entitled The Relationtrip (2017), which premiered at SXSW in March 2017.
