She received a BA in English in July 1993.

In 1987, she starred in the film Hiding Out with Jon Cryer. She played the sister of Julia Roberts' character in 1988's Mystic Pizza. In 1989, Gish got her first major TV film role in When He's Not a Stranger as a rape victim Lyn McKenna. Gish portrayed Anne Hampton, the doomed second wife of Rhett Butler in 1994 in the TV mini series Scarlett.

Gish also had a major part in the 1989 comedy, Shag, starring Bridget Fonda, Phoebe Cates, Page Hannah, Jeff Yagher and Scott Coffey. The film features Carolina shag dancing and was produced in cooperation with the North Carolina Film Commission.
