She is also known for playing Sheriff Jody Mills on Supernatural.
Rhodes was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. She graduated from Benson Polytechnic High School, and then attended Southern Oregon University, graduating in 1991, and earned a Master of Fine Arts from Temple University.
In 1997, while performing in Another World, Rhodes was nominated, along with Mark Pinter, for a Soap Opera Digest award as "Favorite New Couple". For Rhodes's first Another World fan club luncheon, she rewrote the lyrics for "All For the Best" from Godspell. Prior to her Disney Channel début, she had previously acted with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival for one season, portraying the roles of "Daphne Stillington" in Noël Coward's Present Laughter and "Helena" in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.
In 2010, she was cast as Sheriff Jody Mills on the CW's show Supernatural. She first appeared in the season 5 episode "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid", with her character appearing in every season since as a guest star . In 2018, the season 13 episode “Wayward Sisters“ was used as a backdoor pilot for a possible spin-off series of the same name, intended to feature Rhodes and fellow actresses Briana Buckmaster and Kathryn Newton as the main characters. The new series ultimately did not move forward.
Rhodes resides in Los Angeles, California, with her husband, actor Travis Hodges, and their daughter, Tabitha Jane, with whom Rhodes was pregnant at the end of Suite Life's run.
