Vaitiare was the Hispanic spokesperson for Miller Beer from 1993 through to 1995. She has also done ads for J.C. Penney, Toyota, Coors Dry, Caroche-Spain and Honda-Tahiti.

Vaitiare's best known role was in Stargate SG-1, where she guest starred in several episodes as Daniel Jackson's wife, Sha're. She appeared nude in a scene of the pilot episode "Children of the Gods", in which she was forced to take a Goa'uld symbiote by the System Lord Apophis.
She originally auditioned for the role of Shau'ri in Stargate, the 1994 film, but ultimately lost to Mili Avital. She was offered the role in the following television series Stargate SG-1 after auditioning again for the same part.
