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.
A member of the first United States Olympic team in 2000, Moody led the Americans to gold medals at the 2003 FINA World Championships in Barcelona and at the 2003 Pan American Games in the Dominican Republic. The two-meter player also won a Silver Medal at the 2000 Sydney Games and a Bronze Medal as the team captain at the 2004 Athens Olympics.
In 2000 she became the first American to play professional water polo, signing with Club Voulagmeni, the top club team in Greece. She was twice named USA Water Polo Player of the Year (1999, 2001). In February, 2007 she was inducted into the New York Athletic Club Hall of Fame with fellow Olympians, Natalie Golda and Nicolle Payne. The trio were the first women inducted into the NYAC Hall of Fame.
As a member of San Diego State's water polo team, Moody led the Aztecs to a third-place finish at the 1996 Collegiate National Championship in her only season with the Aztecs. Moody was named a first-team All-American that year and was the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation's Co-Player of the Year.
