Meyrink was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. She has appeared in many comedy films, including 1983s Valley Girl as Suzi Brent, 1983's The Outsiders as Cherry Valance's best friend Marcia, and in 1984, she guest-starred on the television show Family Ties as Mallory's friend (and Skippy's latest infatuation). Her last Hollywood role was in the 1988 film Permanent Record. Shortly thereafter, she gave up acting as a professional career. As of 2010 Meyrink now lives with her husband and three children on Bowen Island off the coast of Vancouver. She (and her family) were the subjects of an episode of the Canadian television series Quiet Mind, which focused on their embrace and practice of Zen Buddhism.
