In 1952, she won the title only after a second ballot broke a first-place tie. Loughery, a red head, went on to represent the USA at the very first Miss Universe pageant, where she placed ninth.
Part of her prize package as Miss USA included a contract with Universal Pictures, which led to a career in movies and television. She adopted the stage name Evelyn Avery, but is more often credited with her own name (the name she used when she won the Miss USA title). In 1951 she appeared in the short-lived Variety show Seven at Eleven. In 1954, she was Johnny Carson's assistant in the short lived game show "Earn Your Vacation". She appeared in several movies, including "Pardners" with Martin and Lewis and The D.I. ("Drill Instructor"), with Jack Webb. She co-starred with Edgar Buchanan and Jack Buetel in the 1956 syndicated television series Judge Roy Bean, having appeared as Bean's niece, Letty. Loughery also had non-recurring roles in numerous television programs through the 1950s and 1960s, including the syndicated western 26 Men in the episode "Runaway Stage". In 1958, she appeared in an episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents.
In 1957 and 1958 she made five guest appearances on The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show; three as Joyce Collins and the other two as Vicki Donovan. In 1963 she appeared on Perry Mason as Nell Grimes, who murdered her husband, the title character, in "The Case of the Bigamous Spouse."
She was married to singer Guy Mitchell in October 1953. That marriage ended and she remarried, to actor Jack Webb, in July 1958. She divorced Webb in March 1964 and married her current husband, making her name Jackie Loughery Switzer (or Schwitzer); they live in Encino, California.
