Lawson's big break came when she was cast in the hit television series Saved by the Bell: The New Class. Her career continued with a string of successful television appearances, including roles on hit shows Dawson's Creek, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Steve Harvey Show and Sister, Sister. She also was awarded the series regular role of Bianca Goode on the hit show Goode Behavior, opposite Sherman Hemsley.

Lawson went on to star in the romantic comedy Breakin' All the Rules with Jamie Foxx.
Most recently, Lawson could be seen in successful recurring arcs on the popular series The Vampire Diaries and ABC Family's hit series The Secret Life of the American Teenager.
