She combined with Helen Denman, Sarah Ryan and Nicole Stevenson to qualify Australia for the final, before Susie O'Neill, Samantha Riley, Stevenson and Ryan trailed the United States home. In her only individual event, the 100-metre butterfly, Kennedy was eliminated in the heats.
She attempted to qualify for the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, but finished eighth in the 100-metre butterfly at the Australian Championships. Petria Thomas and Susie O'Neill were selected. Her attempt in the 200-metre individual medley was even less successful, failing to reach the final.
She swam for most of her career at the Telopea Swimming Club in Canberra, Australia under the direction of former Australian butterfly coach Peter Freney. She was teammates to Australian representative and University of Nevada scholarship holder Anthony Rogis, Australian representative Chloe Flutter and Syracuse University scholarship holders Francis Williams and Ben Henri. She moved to Queensland in 1995 and was then coached by Scott Volkers. She now works for the Queensland Police Force.
Kennedy married high school friend Glen Woodward in 2003, in a private ceremony on Magnetic Island, Queensland. She is step mother to Woodward's oldest son Hayden (b. 1995), and mother to sons Sam (b. 2004) and Will (b. 2008).
