At the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain, she was eliminated in the qualifying heats of the 100-metre butterfly and 100-metre backstroke. Four years later at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, United States, Howard's best finish was the fifth place with the Canadian relay team in the 4×100-metre medley, alongside Sarah Evanetz, Guylaine Cloutier and Shannon Shakespeare. In 1995 she won the silver medal in the 4×100-metre medley relay at the 1995 FINA Short Course World Championships, teaming up with Jessica Amey, Lisa Flood and Shannon Shakespeare.
