Jodie Sweetin stars in "Fuller House" on Netflix as Stephanie Tanner, reprising her role from "Full House." She is also one of the celebrity contestants in Season 22 of ABC's ballroom competition series "Dancing with the Stars." She is partnered with professional dancer Keo Motsepe.

Born in Los Angeles, entrepreneur, actress and author Jodie Sweetin rose to fame at just five years old when she was cast as Stephanie Tanner in ABC's comedy "Full House," in which she starred for all eight seasons from 1987 to 1995. For her work, she won the Young Artist Award for Best Young Actress Starring in a Television Series in 1990 and was nominated for the same award four other times. Sweetin reprised the role for the Netflix spinoff, "Fuller House." With her innate sense of comedy and girl next-door charm, audiences were re-introduced to the Stephanie they loved for over eight years, and also saw Stephanie in her new, grown up role on the show.

Originally from Orange County, Sweetin always knew she wanted to be a "modeler." Her mom saw that she loved performing and at three-and-a-half years old, she began doing a few print ads and commercials. She soon booked her breakout role in "Full House" and secured her spot in pop culture with her cute lisp and catchy tag line, "How rude!"

Sweetin's education was always very important to her. A true triple threat, she was in the musical theater program at the Orange County High School of the Arts (OCHSA). She then graduated from Chapman University with a bachelor's degree in liberal arts with an emphasis in elementary teaching. In 2009, she published her memoir, "UnSweetined," which recounts her downward spiral of alcohol and drug abuse that occurred when "Full House" ended. Sweetin wrote the book as a means to show that she was human, had faults, but most importantly, she had strength and courage. In sharing her story, she hopes she has been able to help others confront their issues head-on and move forward.

This beauty has graced the big-and-small screen numerous times in various roles. She thoroughly enjoyed hosting "Pants-Off Dance-Off" for the Fuse Network in 2007, and she and "Full House" co-star Dave Coulier finished a short web series called "Can't Get Arrested." More recently, Sweetin played lead roles in the ION original movie "Defending Santa," starring Dean Cain, and the pilot "Singled Out." She has also done guest appearances on many other shows such as The WB's "Brotherly Love," FOX's "Party of Five" and CBS's "Yes, Dear." In addition, she starred in the independent feature film "Walt Before Mickey," alongside Jon Heder, and appeared in both "Port City" and "Redefining Love."

In addition to juggling the role of actress and mother, Sweetin has teamed with famed jewelry designer Erica Anenberg to create and design the Jodie Sweetin for Erica Anenberg line, a simple and elegant line of necklaces, charms and bracelets with inspiring and positive messages that one can live by and is important to oneself.

In her rare spare time, Sweetin loves to dive into a good book. She has been married and divorced three times and currently lives in Los Angeles. She usually keeps busy going on adventures with her daughters, Zoie and Beatrix.
