Angela Maxwell began skating at age six. She first performed a backflip on ice at age nine.
In the 2003-2004 season, Maxwell won the Southwestern Regional Championships on the Juvenile level to qualify for the 2004 U.S. Junior Championships, which are the national championships in the United States for Juvenile and Intermediate level skaters. She placed 11th at the 2004 Junior Nationals.
The following season, she moved up to the Intermediate level. She won the silver medal at the 2005 Southwestern Regionals and qualified for the 2005 U.S. Junior Championships. She placed fourth at that competition and won the pewter medal.
In the 2005-2006 season, Maxwell moved up to the novice level. She won the silver medal at the 2006 Southwestern Regionals behind Alexe Gilles and qualified for the 2006 Midwestern Sectional Championships. She won the silver medal at that competition behind Rhiana Brammeier, which qualified her for the 2006 United States Figure Skating Championships. At the 2006 Nationals, Maxwell placed 11th.
She remained on the novice level for the 2006-2007 season. Maxwell won both her regional and sectional competitions to qualify for the 2007 United States Figure Skating Championships. She won the 2007 U.S. Novice national title. After her novice win, she was invited to skate at the exhibition. Maxwell performed an exhibition to the music of Jock Jams and performed two backflips on the ice. After Nationals, Maxwell competed at the International Challenge Cup on the novice level and won the competition. It was her first international competition.
In the 2007-2008 season, Maxwell moved up to the Junior level. She was assigned to the 2007–2008 ISU Junior Grand Prix event in Lake Placid, New York, which was the first event of the series. At that event, she won the bronze medal. Maxwell performed a backflip on the ice on her way to accepting the bronze medal. She was part of a US sweep at that competition of the ladies podium along with gold medalist Mirai Nagasu and silver medalist Alexe Gilles.
Her bronze medal put her in a position to potentially qualify for the 2007–2008 ISU Junior Grand Prix Final. However, Maxwell was not assigned to a second event and was not able to attempt to qualify for the Final.
Because she did not qualify for the Final, Maxwell had to qualify for the 2008 U.S. Figure Skating Championships through regionals and sectionals. She won the silver medal at the Southwestern Regionals on the junior level behind Chaochih Liu. She won the Midwestern Sectionals. At Nationals, Maxwell won the silver medal behind Alexe Gilles. Maxwell was the second alternate to the 2008 World Junior Figure Skating Championships.
Maxwell began the 2008-2009 season at the 2008–2009 ISU Junior Grand Prix event in Ostrava, Czech Republic, and won the silver medal. She then competed at the Junior Grand Prix Sheffield in England, where she took the bronze. She, thus, qualified for the 2008–2009 ISU Junior Grand Prix Final, where she finished 5th overall. She competed for the first time as a senior at the 2009 United States Figure Skating Championships, where she finished in 8th place.
Maxwell began the 2009-2010 season on the 2009–2010 ISU Junior Grand Prix series. At her first event, in Hungary, she won the silver medal. She went on to the event in Germany, where she won a second silver medal, and doing so, qualified for the 2009–2010 ISU Junior Grand Prix Final.
She changed coaches following that season. Maxwell was coached to the 2007 United States Figure Skating Championships by Alexey Letov. Her programs that season were choreographed by Olga Ganicheva.
Maxwell began being coached by Natalia Mishkutenok in 2007. Mishkutenok coached her through that season. After the 2007-2008 season, Maxwell relocated from Dallas, Texas and changed coaches to Olga Orlova in Hackensack, New Jersey. Maxwell also retained Robin Wagner as her choreographer.
