Upon graduation, she began working as a costume designer with a summer stock theater company. Her career segued when she was asked to audition for the role of Vera in a production of Ten Little Indians. Soon, she was acting full-time.

Koslow eventually moved to Los Angeles, where she was cast in the movie, Hard to Hold. Guest spots on an array of primetime series followed. She made her daytime debut on The Young and the Restless, where she met future husband, makeup artist Nick Schillace.

Following a gig as fashion designer Margo Lynley on The Bold and the Beautiful, Koslow landed her third soap, Days of our Lives, in 1996. She’s been happily playing vixen Kate Roberts ever since.

Koslow and her family reside on a farm in the San Fernando Valley with a menagerie of pets including dogs, chickens and horses.
