She moved to New York City at the age of 17 to attend The American Musical and Dramatic Academy. After graduation, she became a singer on a cruise ship for nine months. She returned to New York City, where she worked as a stand-in on the Denis Leary TV show “Rescue Me” and appeared alongside Edith Gonzalez, a Mexican telenovela star, at Madison Square Garden.
Other film productions include “Art House” (2018, which Garrett also co-wrote) and “Night of the Forgotten” (2019).
Since returning to the Richmond area, she has appeared several productions, including the Cadence Theatre Company’s 2017 performance of “Rabbit Hole,” Swift Creek Mill Theatre’s production of the Steve Martin bluegrass musical “Bright Star,” Richmond Triangle Players’ musical “Grey Gardens,” Virginia Rep’s performance of “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder,” and the cabaret-style “A Night with Grey Garrett” at Swift Creek Mill Theatre.
