Jones was born in Palo Alto, California. She trained under coach George Haines at the Santa Clara Swim Club in Santa Clara, California.

Jones represented the United States at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City.[1] She swam for the gold medal-winning U.S. team in the preliminary heats of the women's 4x100 medley relay,[1] but did not receive a medal under the 1968 Olympic rules because she did not swim in the event final. She also competed in the semifinals of the women's 100-meter breaststroke, finishing with a time of 1:18.6.[1][2]
