Shyla began dancing as a stripper at the age of 18, first in local Chicago clubs, later as a headliner on US and Canadian club tours. During these years she began doing photo layouts for such magazines as Club, Club International, and Hustler Erotic Video. Eventually she moved to Hollywood to pursue a career in adult entertainment, and was quickly signed by the adult film company Metro. She appeared as "Trophy Girl" in the 1996 and 1994 Nintendo 64 video game, Cruis'n USA (credited as Anutza Herling - her real name) at the same time she was entering adult films.
