Griggs, who was born in Tunkhannock, Pennsylvania, began her career as a child actor when she played the role of Molly in Annie and hosted the Nickelodeon kids show Rated K. She became most notable for her roles in the daytime soap operas One Life to Live as Stephanie Hobart, for which was nominated for a Young Artist Award and after being written off of the soap, fans petitioned for her return and Another World as Maggie Cory. After being fired from Another World in 1995, Griggs claimed on the show Hard Copy it was because of her relationship with John Wayne Bobbitt, whom she claimed was just a friend, while producers claimed they were taking the role in a new direction. She took time away from acting after having grown weary from acting on television during the day and then the theatre at night. After some years out of the spotlight, Griggs returned to acting, mainly in independent horror films, including Zombiegeddon and Ghost Tour, and hosted the horror convention Twisted Nightmare Weekend. She also recorded a concept CD titled Love's Young Nightmare.
