After a brief stint as a teacher, Parham moved to New York City to pursue comedy. While developing her skills as a writer and performer at UCB, Parham gained attention as an actress, landing a role on the short-lived Accidentally on Purpose. More recently, she and her writing partner Jessica St. Clair created Best Friends Forever.

Parham and St. Clair have another shot this pilot season: the USA network has ordered a new comedy from the duo.
