While in high school she modeled in several highschool talent shows and local fashion shows. Upon graduation she went on to college at Howard University where she landed a job as a regular on BET's Planet Groove.

After getting her B.A., she moved to New York, sharing a small apartment with two other aspiring models.

Other print jobs for Coca-Cola, Seagram's, Jeep, Newport, Kohl's, Verizon and Samsung soon followed.

International television commercials

Anderson's first international television commercial was filmed in Tel Aviv, Israel in July 2008. Titled "The Ring", Anderson portrays one of two final contestants in the Yes.stars network parody-commercial of The Bachelor. The commercial runs 56 seconds and is only available in hebrew.

Network television

By 2004, Anderson had branched out, landing gigs on Good Morning America, the Today show, ABC Primetime, Blue's Clues, Law & Order, Sex and the City, and the CW's All of Us, as an actress.[1] On March 4, 2008 she appeared on ABC's Primetime: What Would You Do?, as the waitress (Lisa).[3] She is a member of AFTRA and SAG. In April, 2008, on ABC's 20/20, Anderson portrayed the young woman singing 'Stop! In The Name of Love' with intentional amateurishness as part of a social experiment involving pedestrians reacting to her bad signing. Mary Wilson, who recorded the song as a member of The Supremes approached Anderson at the end of the story and gave her constructive criticism towards her style in contrast to the pedestrians whose reactions were positive but disingenuous.

Film

Anderson, who lives in New York, has starred in several locally produced short films including the Valence Johnson production "Delores Furst".

Music videos

Anderson has appeared in several music videos including Brandy's "Full Moon", and the videos of Swizz Beatz, Rah Digga, Fat Joe, and Ghostface Killah.
