Actress, advocate, philanthropist, and producer Torrey Joël DeVitto is best known for her incredible six season run on the NBC drama, “Chicago Med” playing Natalie Manning, the ‘girl next door’ and a doctor in the ER Pediatrics division. Outside of her acting work, DeVitto’s mission is to grant access and bring knowledge of wellness and philanthropy to as many people as possible.

Born and raised in Huntington, New York, to Mary & Liberty DeVitto, DeVitto was surrounded by the entertainment industry from the moment she was born. For 28 years, her father played the drums for Billy Joel and she spent most of her early years traveling on the road with her parents. By the time DeVitto could walk, her heart was in the music and acting world. She began violin lessons at age six and was in the 4th grade when she had already earned her place as the 4th chair violinist in a New York high school orchestra. She later played the violin at a show that Tommy Davidson put on and was backed by Brian McKnight's band. DeVitto later studied dance with the Kings Park Dance Center in New York and started working in commercials and modeling by 15.

DeVitto has numerous credits across television and film in her storied career. She may be best known for her role in the CW television series, “Vampire Diaries” as Meredith Fell, her popular recurring role as Melissa on ABC Family’s hit show, “Pretty Little Liars” as well as her character Carrie on the CW's "One Tree Hill". Her work includes: playing Alexandra on the MTV pilot Alexandra the Great; guest-starring on the FBC pilot One Big Happy; guest-starring in The Untitled Michael Jacobs Pilot for FBC; as well as guest-starring on episodes of Scrubs (2001), Dawson's Creek (1998), Jack & Bobby (2004), The King of Queens (1998), Drake & Josh (2004), CSI: Miami (2002) and Castle (2009).

DeVitto booked her first lead on the ABC Family series Beautiful People (2005) as aspiring model Karen Kerr. On the film front, her film debut was in Starcrossed (2005), and she has appeared in the 2006 movie sequel I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer (2006), The Rite (2011) with Anthony Hopkins, Green Flash (2008), Killer Movie (2008), and Heber Holiday (2007) and Evidence (2013), starring Stephen Moyer. Staying true to her love of music, throughout the years she has played violin at a show with the Tommy Davidson Band, was featured on Raphael Saadig’s, “Ray Ray,” and Stevie Nicks’ album, “In Your Dreams,” and has performed several times with her father on stage to standing ovations. Recently, DeVitto and her father performed a song called “You’ve Been Through” for a PSA for SAMHSA, talking about the dangers of drugs and alcohol.

As an advocate for women's safety, health and rights, she is working on the board of directors with SafeBAE, is a spokesperson and ambassador for the NHPCO. She is also an outspoken advocate for reproductive rights and spoke at Planned Parenthood’s Bans Off Our Bodies virtual rally, attended The Women’s Convention in 2022 as well as shared her own abortion story in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE. Cycling through veganism and vegetarianism for the past 13 years, she is also an advocate for animals and regularly supports organizations such as PETA, IMAlive, The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), and PAWS adoption in Chicago.
