Tylene started out as a fitness model around 1990. Her first break into the industry was when IPS Motorsports photographed her at a Bikini contest at the Candlerock lounge in Sacramento California. After that IPS Motorsports introduced her to some other editors at the Sacramento Street Machine event that year. Tylene's first magazine cover in Sport Truck magazine was shot at the event. Her career continued on that year with several automotive magazine covers and features, shot by IPS Motorsports and Primedia staff.

She had a brief pro wrestling career that started in late 1999 in WCW as one of the nWo girls. Tylene, along with four other models (April Hunter, Kim Kanner (Shakira), Midajah and Pamela Paulshock), accompanied members of the nWo to ringside for their matches.
She left the nWo to become a backstage interviewer but that didn't last very long.
Tylene then became Major Gunns, joining the Misfits In Action stable led by General Rection. She would come out in camouflaged shorts and a small white t-shirt and would strip the shirt off later in the matches revealing a camouflaged bikini top. Her most notable feuds were with The Filthy Animals manager Tygress and Miss Hancock (Stacy Keibler) . Tylene defeated Hancock at the WCW New Blood Rising Pay-Per-View on August 13, 2000 in Vancouver, British Columbia, in a mud wrestling match.

She spent some time in Lance Storm's Team Canada where Storm would not allow her to show off her body like the Misfits did. Tylene eventually turned heel and stayed with the group over returning to The Misfits.

She was released by WCW in early 2001 before it was sold to the WWF and went to Xtreme Pro Wrestling in California and became the valet for Sandman, where she feuded heavily with Lizzy Borden. Tylene retired from pro wrestling in 2002 and went back to modeling.
