Born in Vicenza, Italy, and raised in Castle Rock, Colorado, Adams is the fourth of seven siblings.

After relocating to Los Angeles, she made several guest appearances in television, and took on mean girl parts in small-scale features.

Her breakthrough came in the part of a loquacious pregnant woman in the 2005 independent film Junebug.
