Born in Los Angeles, California, Sweetin first stepped into showbiz by doing an Oscar Meyer hot dog commercial when she was just four years old. Her debut role was in The Hogan Family in 1987, in which she played Pamela, the niece of Mrs. Poole. She also provided the voice of Sally Brown in It's Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown. It was her acting ability and smile that attracted the attention of Jeff Franklin, who created a new sitcom that would ultimately become Full House. Sweetin was cast as role of Stephanie Tanner, and was on the show for its entire (eight-year) run until its cancellation in 1995. During that time she became well known for her role and developed a large number of fans.

Following the end of Full House, Sweetin took a break from acting and attempted to be a "normal" teenager. She graduated from Los Alamitos High School in 1999 and then attended Chapman University in southern California from 1999–2003. She majored in mass communications, and planned a show business career as an acting teacher. She pledged Alpha Phi Women's Fraternity while in college. Sweetin occasionally made guest appearances on popular TV shows, including Brotherly Love, Party of Five, and Yes, Dear. She also did commercials for Cheerios, Kooshlings, Disneyland, and Sea World.

Sweetin married police officer and semi-pro tennis player Shaun Holguin on July 27, 2002. Many of her friends and family attended the ceremony, as well as her former Full House castmates. Her flower girl was Full House co-star Candace Cameron's daughter, Natasha.

She began using crystal meth shortly after getting married, an addiction which lasted for a little over two years, and of which her friends, family, and husband were unaware. In March 2005, after being in the emergency room from the effects of alcohol and meth, she voluntarily checked herself into rehab. "One minute, everyone loves you, everyone wants you, you're it," Sweetin said. "And the next minute, they're like, 'Who? Oh no, never mind.' In February 2006, she appeared on Good Morning America to publicly announce her meth addiction, mentioning that five of her teeth had rotted away. She also denied tabloid reports of a "three-day bender" and an intervention from her former Full House castmates. She also announced that her husband filed for divorce because her addiction put his status as a police officer in jeopardy. Later that year, her divorce from her husband was finalized.

Now clean and sober, Sweetin has expressed an interest in returning to acting in movies or television. From July 2006 to 2007, Sweetin hosted the second season of Pants-Off Dance-Off, a TV-PG rated dance contest on Fuse TV[1]. The program features mostly amateurs stripping down to their panties to their favorite music videos.

Sweetin currently resides in Los Alamitos, CA. She gives speeches about her recovery from meth addiction.

Recently Sweetin has been linked with Jason Wahler of the MTV show Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County. There have been several pictures of the two drinking in LA nightclubs together. However in a recent press conference at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, California, she stated that she and Jason Wahler aren't a couple. She is adopted and has referenced that her biological family has had a history of addiction [1] She also lended her voice in the comedic satire Farce of the Penguins which was directed by her Full House co-star Bob Saget.
