Before coming to The Beach, Moody was named the interim head coach of the women's national team in 2005 and a month later led the Americans to a silver medal at the FINA World Championships in Montreal.
Moody resumed her assistant coaching duties with Team USA in 2005 after Guy Baker was hired as head coach. Moody has been an assistant with the national team ever since. Moody also coached at Golden West Junior College for five years.
