Born and raised in Huntington, New York, to Mary and Liberty DeVitto, the longtime drummer for Billy Joel, she spent most of her early years traveling on the road with her parents. By the time she could walk, DeVitto had fallen in love with music and acting.
With music in her genes, she began playing violin at six years old. Soon, she began to study acting and dance. At 15, she started working in commercials and was professionally modeling. Her first break in acting came in 1999 when she participated in the Aaron Spelling production "Safe Harbor." One year later, she booked the Nickelodeon pilot "Noah Knows Best."
After graduating high school, she moved to Los Angeles, where her career as an actress began to take off. She landed roles on the CW series "The Vampire Diaries" and ABC Family's hit show "Pretty Little Liars." However, she is best known for her performance as Carrie on the CW drama "One Tree Hill."
DeVitto's additional television credits include guest roles on "Scrubs," "Dawson's Creek," "The King of Queens," "Drake & Josh," "CSI: Miami" and "Castle."
DeVitto is very active with a number of philanthropic organizations and is also a Hospice Ambassador. She strongly supports PETA and the Humane Society of the United States. She worked alongside the National Alliance of Mental Illness to raise awareness for Mental Health Month in May. DeVitto also joined NAMI to share her own story and the importance of living stigma-free of mental illnesses.
DeVitto also makes time to dote on her dogs, Beau and Homie, who were adopted at Much Love, a pet adoption agency in Los Angeles.
