Sellecca was born in The Bronx, New York, New York to Italian parents. At age twelve, she moved to Pomona, New York and attended Pomona Junior High School.

She then starred in the short-lived CBS comedy Flying High, about the misadventures of three airline flight attendants, then as lawyer Pam Davidson on The Greatest American Hero, the girlfriend and foil to the main character. After Hero ended, she was released from her contract in time to audition for the part of promotions manager Christine Francis on the television drama Hotel, alongside James Brolin. She appeared in the series from 1983 to 1988. From 1991–92, she starred along with Greg Evigan in the CBS crime drama series P.S. I Luv U.
Sellecca later starred in several made-for-television films. Among her more recent work was a role in the 2009 film The Wild Stallion.
