Born Judith Clare Boutin in Portland, Oregon, she was a talented figure skater who became a professional star performer with the Ice Follies. All this changed when she broke her back in an accident. Even after recovering, she continued until she broke her knee cap and was advised by doctors to stop skating.
Meredith was performing in stock until she was spotted by George Burns, an American comedian, who cast her in the recurring role of Bonnie Sue McAfee on The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show (1957), and the next year as herself on The George Burns Show. That year, 1958, saw Meredith's film debut, Wild Heritage.
In the 1959-1960 television season, Meredith played Monique Deveraux, a young French woman, in the CBS western series Hotel de Paree, with Earl Holliman, Jeanette Nolan, and Strother Martin. From the late 1950s through the 1960s, Meredith appeared in several TV series' including 87th Precinct (TV series), Wagon Train, Gunsmoke, Have Gun – Will Travel, Bonanza, Mannix, and Hawaii Five-O. After a few other appearances, she left acting and has not been heard from since.
