She first appeared at the Walsh Family House, leading a survey on the teen advisory board for the upcoming shopping mall project organized by her father, Dickson St. Claire. She attended school in Switzerland and later relocated to L.A., where she attended college and was a member of the sorority Tri Gams. She was interested in being an architect.
Upon meeting Brandon Walsh, she was very flirtatious and struck up a positive rapport with him, inviting him and his friends to a fraternity party at her college. She attended this with Brandon, matching his "no dancing" rule. She later showed him her models of the architecture and ended up kissing Brandon. She offered him a spot in her company if her dad liked him.
They later went to The Peach Pit, where she enjoyed a Mega-Burger. She got into a fight with Brandon when he sandbagged her with the news that her father's project was going to end up tearing down The Peach Pit.
She later attended a joint commission meeting with her father and introduced Brandon to him. When Brandon spoke out against her father's project, their relationship became strained. She and Brandon had an exchange of words out of DSC, her father's company, about their fathers. She accused him of being a bleeding heart, while he accused her of not thinking for herself. The deal later fell through.
