After making several appearances as a child artist, she got her first leading role in ‘My Life and Times’, a short-lived drama series that aired on ABC. Her portrayal of Jamie Buchman on ‘Mad about You’ not only won her an Emmy Award, but also earned her several other prestigious awards and nominations.
