She graduated from Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf in 1986.

Snyder is also the CEO of Productions J, a company that she founded in 1997, which produces television shows such as Occupation Double (TVA, 2003–present).

Programs that Snyder participated in include Star Académie, L'enfer c'est nous autres, Sortir, and Le poing J. Snyder made her first television appearance in 1983.

Snyder hosted the French-Canadian adaptation of Deal or No Deal in Canada, Le Banquier, which began 24 January 2007 on the TVA network which became the top-rated television program in Quebec. The show ended on in May 2017. The show on La semaine des 4 Julie is a variety and talk-show from Noovo.ca.

From 2001 to 2014, Snyder was the common-law wife of Pierre Karl Péladeau, the president and CEO of Quebecor Media, the parent company of TVA. She has two children with Péladeau, Thomas (born May 2005) and Romy (born October 2008). They split in January 2014 and reconciled later that summer. They were married on August 15, 2015 in Quebec City.

They separated again in January 2016, less than five months after their marriage. In July 2016, Snyder revealed that she had been the target of surveillance by a private detective. Later that month, she went to Quebec Superior Court and managed to convince a judge to order the PI firm responsible for the investigation to reveal to her the person who had hired the PI to tail her, information she kept to herself.

In the waning days of the 2012 Quebec election, Snyder hosted a Parti Québécois rally where she heaped praise on the party leader, Pauline Marois. Snyder has also backed the failed Quebec Charter of Values that was tabled by the PQ government.

Snyder's friends and professional advisors include Céline Dion and the late René Angélil.

As of 2017, she is a host on Radio-Canada's ICI Radio network.
