Born in Hollywood, Cody moved to Santa Monica eight years later, where she has lived ever since. As one of four girls in her family of six, Cody found her identity through her love of acting and performing for others. Cody's ambition was clearly unstoppable to everyone around her from very early on. After participating in numerous school plays, Cody's thirst for acting only grew as she realized her fervor for performing, and portraying characters. At 13-years-old, she was discovered by a manager that placed her in acting classes with some of the top acting coaches in the business. Cody spent time studying musical theatre, however acting in television and film surfaced as her true passions.

Mills, Jackson Harris, Kevin McCullough, Leona Lewis, etc. From music videos, she transitioned smoothly into modeling, and in 2009 modeled in Fashion Week for designers Chelsea Rebelle and The Battalion, which led to a feature in Nylon Magazine Online.

In addition, Cody has done modeling campaigns for Volcom, StampD'LA, Raw Girls, Purlieu, Native American Vintage, Hippo Gorilla Giraffe Vintage Clothes, Jayro White, Sarah Jessica Parker's clothing line Bitten, Puma, Nike, and Eastpack.
