In 2009, she was selected to star in the NBC medical drama Mercy, as Nurse Veronica Flanagan Callahan, a tough Iraq War veteran and former military nurse-turned-medical practitioner. Reading for the part via videotape from New York City, she impressed the show’s creator and executive producer, Liz Heldens, who then flew her out to Los Angeles to audition for the role. In Heldens’ words, “she just blew the doors off the audition.”
