At the age of 5, Sloan was interested in acting in theatre. Nine years of her life were spent acting and auditioning for plays. She was moving constantly, giving her major plays to attend and participate (whilst switching schools/countries/states). While in London and San Francisco, she starred in many films, with her acting a success on stage (most recently Maria in West Side Story, Hodel in Fiddler on the Roof, and Juliet in Romeo and Juliet). Sloan still moves constantly to pursue her career and continue acting in films and shows.
Her original plan of only spending a summer there[where?] was abandoned after immediately nabbing roles on the shows Judging Amy, General Hospital, and the independent film State's Evidence. That summer,[when?] Sloan was accepted into an academic High School only weeks before school was to resume. Transitioning from her low key, Northern California Public School life to one combining academic rigor and work in the film industry, Sloan shot two films (Blue Demon and Glass Trap) and starred in a school production (Lilian Hellman's The Children's Hour). Her most recent projects are Go Figure and Joint Custody.
