Weeks entered into acting through her participation in the Ziegfeld Follies. In 1931 she was named as one of fourteen girls selected as a "WAMPAS Baby Star", which launched her into a brief but successful acting career, mostly in cliffhanger serials and B-movie films and B-Westerns.

Eight of her films starred Tim McCoy, Buck Jones, Tom Tyler, and Charles Starrett. For a time she was married to B-Western actorGuinn "Big Boy" Williams. She left the film business in the late 1930s after she married Lockheed test pilot Lewis Parker in 1938. In 1945, after the end of World War II, Parker's plane disappeared over the North Atlantic, and he was never found.

Following the death of her second husband, Weeks moved to New York City and began working as a model. In 1949 she married William Cox, with whom she had a son, Schuyler John Wing Cox. The couple were married for a short time, divorcing. She then moved to Las Vegas where she worked as a secretary. She died in Las Vegas twenty days before her 90th birthday in 2003.
