By age six, Schulman appeared in over 200 TV commercials.[1] In 1984, she was then cast in the role of Harriet on the pilot for Small Wonder, which ran for four seasons and 96 episodes. Schulman's childhood work, though often later lampooned for its perceived kitsch, received recognition by her contemporaries: she twice won Young Artist Awards and was nominated for the peer honor three other times. Additional television credits include Finders Keepers, Hotel, Mr. Belvedere, ALF and The Wonder Years.

Schulman also starred in the 1989 films Troop Beverly Hills and Caddie Woodlawn. Her last acting appearance was on the television series Christy (with her Troop Beverly Hills co-star Kellie Martin), in which she played Ruby Mae Morrison.

Post-acting careerEdit

At 17, Schulman began a career shift away from the cameras. In 2008, after 13 years as the head of Acme Talent & Literary's Commercial Division, Schulman relocated her department to its current home at Talentworks.[2] Schulman teaches acting in Connecticut.[1]


Schulman married Derek Webster in 2002; the couple have four children.[3]
