Beaton was born on December 5, 1994, in Toronto, Ontario, and grew up near Claremont, Ontario. Beaton also has a younger sister, Sophie. She has stated that ever since a young age, she "knew" she wanted to be a performer, and began ballet classes at the age of two, and acting at five years old. Beaton studied political science at the University of Guelph, and noted that the course made her "think more critically".
Beaton made her professional acting debut in the 2006 film 300, and subsequently appeared in various television advertisements. In 2013, Beaton was cast in the Family series The Next Step as Emily. Beaton has described Emily as a "a bit of a mean girl", and noted Emily is "more confrontational" than herself in real life.

In 2017, Beaton starred as Emma in a web series Spiral, alongside The Next Step co-star Brennan Clost. In 2019, she starred in the Lifetime television film The Cheerleader Escort as Cassie Talbot.
