At the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain, she finished in seventh place in the women's 200-metre individual medley, and thirteenth in the 400-metre individual medley. Four years later at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, United States, she ended up in eleventh position in the 400-metre individual medley, after winning the silver medal in the same event at the 1995 FINA Short Course World Championships in Rio de Janeiro.

She is a cousin of Canadian pop-rock singer-songwriter Skye Sweetnam.
