Outside of her various roles in daytime soap operas, she has worked extensively in various Glen A. Larson productions including BJ and the Bear, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo, Magnum, Knight Rider, and The Fall Guy. [1] In 1986, she was nominated for "Outstanding Actress in a Lead Role" by Soap Opera Digest.

During a hiatus from acting, she taught at the College of the Desert in Palm Desert, California for several semesters, but later returned to acting and began a stint as a director as well.[1]

She presently resides in Palm Springs, California with her life partner, James.[1] In addition, she is presently playing the role of Gloria Fisher Abbot in The Young and the Restless, a role she had since 2005.
