In her own words from her Facebook page:

I began my acting career at eleven months old and I'm best known for playing "Tabitha" on the hit 60’s/70's sitcom: Bewitched.

I started filming June 16, 1966 the day before my second birthday. That episode (Nobody's Perfect), the season three premiere and the first in color, originally aired September 15, 1966. My role continued for the following six seasons, and I feel lucky for being a part of such an enduring show.

Following Bewitched, I didn’t lose my love for the business and was able to balance a successful career with a normal childhood. I modeled and have appeared in over one-hundred commercials.

As an adult, I have worked as a casting director, a makeup artist, a fashion stylist, an acting teacher, Karaoke club hostess, a motivational speaker and even as a stunt double. Currently I work as an actress, television host and correspondent.

I have a passion for fitness, fashion, cooking, sailing, horseback riding and animals. I enjoy the occasional snow day, but I'm happiest on a sunny beach.

I am very active in the community, and have been president of the Junior Women’s Club, and a member of my City Council Leadership Program. I have been donating blood since I turned eighteen, and I'm actively involved with several children's charities and special needs organizations.[3]
