At the 2003 Canadian Junior Curling Championships, the team finished the round robin with a 9-3 record and would lose in the semifinal, placing third overall. At the 2005 Canadian Junior Curling Championships, the team went undefeated in the round robin, but would end up losing in the final to New Brunswick's Andrea Kelly rink. On her new team at the 2007 Canadian Junior Curling Championships, the rink would finish with a 7-5 record, missing the playoffs.


After juniors, McTaggart played for Team Renée Sonnenberg until 2010, when she joined forced with Desirée Robertson (now Owen) again for two seasons. She returned to the Sonnenberg rink in 2012, playing second for the team. The team won the A qualifier at the 2013 Canadian Olympic Curling Pre-Trials, qualifying the rink for the 2013 Canadian Olympic Curling Trials. There, the team placed last with a 2-5 record. After the season, McTaggart left the team to join the Scheidegger rink at third. They won their first Grand Slam event at the 2017 Meridian Canadian Open.
