At the 1967 Pan American Games in Winnipeg, Canada, Moore received the silver medal for her second-place performance in the 200-meter backstroke. She finished behind Canadian star Elaine Tanner and ahead of American teammate Cathy Ferguson.
Moore represented the United States at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City. She competed in the women's 100-meter backstroke, finishing in fourth place overall in the event final with a time of 1:08.3.
Moore broke two world records during her swimming career. She set a new world record in the 200-meter butterfly of 2:26.3 on August 15, 1965; it was broken six days later by Ada Kok of the Netherlands. She was also a member of a U.S. relay team that set a new world record in the 4×100-meter medley relay at the 1967 Pan American Games. The medley relay record survived for thirteen months until it was broken by another team of Americans in 1968.
