Gibson was discovered by C. B. Cochran, who made her one of Cochran's Young Ladies. On 30 November 1933, she played Ena Hawkins in a production of Mr Whittington at the Alhambra Theatre, Glasgow, starring alongside Jack Buchanan. A review published in The Stage in December 1933 said that Gibson "looks pretty in the part of Ena and performs some very neat dancing". The show went on tour and included some weeks at the London Hippodrome Theatre. This led to a film contract.

Gibson died in Paddington, London in 1974.
