Early Life

She also worked on "Kidsworld" as a celebrity correspondent at the age of 11.

Peete's family later moved to Santa Monica, California when Peete was 10 years old. She attended Santa Monica High School and then enrolled at Sarah Lawrence College. She majored in both psychology and French and spent a year abroad studying at the Sorbonne in Paris. While in Paris, Peete enjoyed performing and singing in Parisian night clubs. Because of her interest in language, Peete considered a career with the U.S. State Department but decided that she would first try a career in acting.


As an adult, Peete began booking roles in the mid and late 1980s, starting with "Howard the Duck" in 1986. In 1987, she booked a recurring role in the series "21 Jump Street" and appeared as Officer Judy Offs for 102 episodes until 1991.
