She then attended King's College London and University of California, Los Angeles.
Turner landed her first speaking role in Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo. That same year, she was cast on MTV's late night anthology series, Undressed. She also did TV commercials for Gap "Khaki Country" and "Khaki-a-go-go," and for Dr. Pepper.
Turner was a background dancer in feature films as The Big Lebowski (1998), She's All That (1999) and Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999). She had roles in The Wedding Planner (2001), Joe Dirt (2001), American Pie 2 (2001) and the starring role of head cheerleader in Bring It On Again (2004).
Turner has also appeared in independent films, including the musical and romantic drama True Vinyl (2000) and the wrestling drama Backyard Dogs.
Turner has worked in television, with recurring roles on the UPN sitcom Moesha, the ABC sitcom Spin City, the CBS drama Cold Case, guest starred on the UPN drama Sex, Love & Secrets and starred in the pilot episode ("Incident On and Off a Mountain Road") of Showtime's horror/thriller series Masters of Horror.
Turner has also acted on stage, playing Ivy in The Pages of My Diary I'd Rather Not Read at Hudson Mainstage Theater in Los Angeles in January 2003.
As of 2017, Turner finished her sixth season on the NBC drama series Grimm, portraying the character Rosalee Calvert. The part was a recurring role in season 1, moving to the main cast from season 2 onwards.
In 2008, Turner married orthopedic surgeon Justin Saliman at the Casa Del Mar hotel in Santa Monica, California. They have a daughter named Stella Jean (born June 29, 2010), and a son named Dean (born September 12, 2012). In March 2018, Turner filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.
Regarding her hobbies, Turner said:
|“||Growing up, I had a Nintendo. I liked Mario Bros. and Track & Field. I was very good. I don't mean to age myself, but I came home every day, went straight to my Nintendo and rocked it. I have three younger brothers, so I always leaned towards more boy hobbies. I was a dancer, so in my down time I always wanted to play video games and hang out with the boys. Then when I went to college, I had a PlayStation but I haven't picked up my joystick in a while. I need to get back on it. I got into Dance Dance Revolution for a while.||”|
