She studied for a BA in social science at the Open University of Israel before gaining a master's degree in public policy at Tel Aviv University. She also studied wilderness management at the University of Montana and worked for the forestry section of the Jewish National Fund in northern Israel. She went on to become director of the JNF's public relations department. In the late 1990s she was elected to Yokneam Illit City Council, serving as deputy mayor from 2002 until 2017.
A member of the Labor Party, Fadida was placed 32nd on the party's list for the 2013 Knesset elections, but failed to win a seat. Prior to the 2015 Knesset elections she was placed 27th on the list of the Zionist Union, an alliance of Labor and Hatnuah. Although the alliance won only 24 seats, Fadida entered the Knesset on 6 October 2017 as a replacement for Erel Margalit, who returned to the business world after losing the party leadership election to Avi Gabbay.
