Maschmeyer was the second female goalie to compete in the Brick Tournament in Edmonton. A meeting was set up at the tournament for her to meet Shannon Szabados and since then, the two have stayed in contact. She played against her brother Brock, who played for the Fort McMurray Oil Barons, and stopped him in a shoot-out. Maschmeyer played two exhibition games during the 2010–11 season with the Lloydminster Bobcats of the AJHL. In an exhibition game versus the Camrose Kodiaks, Maschmeyer posted no goals against and was named game star.
Maschmeyer won a gold medal with Team Alberta at the 2011 Canada Winter Games. In addition, she claimed a gold at the 2009 Alberta Winter Games. She earned a shutout for Team Canada in the gold medal game at the 2012 IIHF World Women's U18 Championship, a 3–0 triumph over the United States.

Maschmeyer has appeared in 3 consecutive IIHF World Championship Tournaments for Canada, in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Canada earned silver medals in all three tournaments.
In March 2012, Maschmeyer committed to play for the Harvard Crimson. Maschmeyer made 29 saves for Harvard in the championship game of the 2015 NCAA National Collegiate Women's Ice Hockey Tournament.
Winning the starting goaltender duties, Maschmeyer would earn a spot in the 3rd Canadian Women's Hockey League All-Star Game. In addition, she would gain the start for Calgary in the 2017 Clarkson Cup finals versus Les Canadiennes de Montreal.
Following her release from Canada's Centralization Camp in preparation for the 2018 Winter Games, Maschmeyer would be traded to Les Canadiennes, becoming their starting goaltender. Erin Ambrose, who had also been released from Centralization would join Maschmeyer in Montreal, having been traded from the Toronto Furies.
The 2018–19 season would see Maschmeyer gain the second All-Star nod of her career, playing with Alex Rigsby for Team Purple in the 4th Canadian Women's Hockey League All-Star Game. Coincidentally, the two would play against each other in the 2019 Clarkson Cup Finals, with Rigsby as the starter for the Calgary Inferno, Maschmeyer's former club. Of note, Calgary would emerge victorious, defeating Maschmeyer and Montreal by a 5–2 count.
