D. was from Odessa, Ukraine.

During the beginnings of Yiddish theatre in New York, D. performed in the chorus of the Zilberman and Heimovitsh troupe (Oriental Theatre), where her husband, a peddler, had brought money due them and became cashier. A short time later she went on as "Shulamit" and acted in some of the prima donna roles given Sophia Karp.

Later when new actors came from Europe, D. was placed into the background, and she then retired from the stage.
