In 2001, she was cast as Liberty Van Zandt on the hit Canadian television series Degrassi: The Next Generation. She remained on the show from 2001-2009 for nine seasons.

Barrable-Tishauer graduated from Concordia University in Montréal in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Communication Studies and Computation Arts.
