The daughter of actress Jeanne Baird, Meyerink became a model when she was two and a half years old. Although she received a season-long contract to perform on The Danny Kaye Show, she left the program after the laughter of the audience began to upset her.[3]

She went on to co-star with Anne Francis in Brainstorm, with Clint Walker in The Night of the Grizzly and with Elvis Presley in Speedway. On television she guest-starred on such notable shows as Green Acres, My Three Sons and Family Affair.

As an adult, she was, at one time, the youngest female film producer in the film industry; producing the film Young Warriors at the age of twenty-two. In addition to Young Warriors, Meyerink produced Night Force and Finding Home, for which she received the Montreal World Film Festival Excellence in Producing Award.
