She had a starring role in Starship Troopers 2. As part of the film's promotion, she enthusiastically devoted time to visiting hospitals to meet with military personnel wounded in the Iraqi and Afghani theatres of war and meeting with their families.
Born in Minneapolis, Carlson began her working relationship with cameras as a model at 17, and soon became one of the most popular models and commercial actresses in the Midwest. Professionals constantly urged her to continue her career in Hollywood, and at the insistence of her agent she headed west while still in her teens.
She had trained in acting for years, and soon began to study with top coach, Lee Kelton Smith. Soon thereafter, she landed roles in Little Big League, Splitsville and Paparazzi. Her television work includes guest-starring roles on Everwood and Passions. She has appeared on stage in such productions as Vanities, Cheaters, Girl's Guide To Chaos, Charlotte's Web and Can't Trust The Mate.
Carlson is a spokesperson for the Smile Network, an organization that addresses the cosmetic surgery needs of at-risk children. A one-time nationally competitive equestrian, she still enjoys horseback riding.
