Edwards played in her first Olympic Games as a collegian, and was the youngest member of the team,in 1984.

Edwards played for the Lynx during the 2003 and 2004 seasons. Afterward, her contract expired and she became a free agent. But no other WNBA team offered her a contract for the 2005 season.
In December 2006, Edwards returned to Lynx, as an assistant coach.
