Smith was the #1 overall pick in the 2020 NWSL College Draft and was selected by Portland Thorns FC.

In 2023, Smith scored her first professional hat-trick and was named NWSL Player of the Month for March/April and again in June after scoring six goals in four matches. Internationally, Smith has competed for the United States on the under-17, under-20, and senior national teams. In 2023, Smith was named to the U.S. squad for the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

Smith has been featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated and in Elle, Vogue, and Time magazines. In 2023, she co-starred with Megan Rapinoe and Becky Sauerbrunn in a commercial for ESPN's SportsCenter. That same year, she starred in a Nike commercial entitled "Nice to Beat You."
