The blonde actress appeared in many television shows and movies of the era, including Elvis Presley's Loving You (1957) and AIP's I Was a Teenage Werewolf (1957) (co-starring as title character Michael Landon's girlfriend).

According to Lime, one of the most important (and rewarding) parts of her life is her charity work: beginning in the 1950s, while entertaining U.S. troops in Japan, she and her actress-friend Sara O'Meara became concerned with the plight of orphans and took the first steps toward founding International Orphans Inc., an organization that built and maintained four orphanages in Japan, as well as five orphanages, a hospital and a school in Vietnam. Lime and O'Meara later redirected their efforts toward abused and neglected children in the U.S. and changed their organization's name to Childhelp USA.
