Schmidt began her career at the age of seven with TSV 1880 Gera-Zwötzen. The club changed its name to 1. FC Gera 03 after a merger in 2003. During her entire youth career up to Under-15 level in the 2005–06 season, she played as the only girl on the team and only knew women's football from state selection squads and junior national teams.
In 2006, Schmidt moved to the reigning German club champion 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam and soon became a regular starter for the team. She scored eight goals in her first Bundesliga season and won the Fritz Walter medal in bronze as the third best female junior player of the year. At Potsdam, Schmidt won three Bundesliga titles in a row from 2009 to 2011. She also claimed the UEFA Women's Champions League in the 2009–10 season with the team, where she scored during the penalty shoot-out in the final. One year later, Potsdam again made it to the final, but lost against Olympique Lyonnais.
In summer 2012 she was transferred to 1. FFC Frankfurt.
Starting at Under-15 level, Schmidt played for several German junior national teams. She won the 2007 UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship and claimed third-place at the 2008 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup. She made her debut for Germany's senior national team in February 2009 against China. Later that year Schmidt was called up and was a regular starter for Germany at the 2009 European Championship, which the team won. In 2010, she returned to play in a junior competition, winning the 2010 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup on home soil in Germany. Schmidt was called up for Germany's 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup squad.
