In 2000, Mendelsohn joined the production of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and became its show runner and Executive Producer [1].

In June 2014 it was announced that after 14 years Mendelsohn would leave CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.[2]

She was also co-creator and executive producer of CSI: Miami and CSI: NY and CSI: Cyber.
