Beard began her swimming career at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. At the age of 14, Beard won one gold medal and two silver, in the process becoming the second youngest Olympic medalist in American swimming history. She was frequently photographed holding her teddy bear, even on the medal stand.

At the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Beard took home a bronze medal in the 200m breaststroke.

While attending the University of Arizona, Beard won an individual NCAA Division I championship in 2001. In 2003 she set the American record in the 200m breaststroke.

Beard qualified for her fourth straight Olympics in 2008, and was named co-captain of the US Olympic women's swimming team with Dana Torres and Natalie Coughlin. She did not win any medals.
