Youth career

Dodds played second for the Hannah Fleming junior rink that won a silver medal at the 2013 World Junior Curling Championships. While attending Edinburgh College, Dodds played on Fleming's team at the 2013 Winter Universiade, placing fourth.

Women's career

Dodds left the Fleming rink in 2014, playing third for Lauren Gray for two seasons. The team won the 2015 Dumfries Challenger Series event on the World Curling Tour. In 2016, she returned to the Fleming rink as her third. The team won the 2018 Scottish Women's Curling Championship and defeated the Eve Muirhead Olympic team for the right to represent Scotland at the 2018 Ford World Women's Curling Championship. There, the team missed the playoffs with a 5-7 record.

For the 2018–19 season, Dodds joined the Muirhead rink as third. At the first leg of the 2018–19 Curling World Cup, Dodds skipped the team due to Muirhead having a hip injury.[1] They finished in sixth with a 2-4 record.[2] She played in her first European Curling Championships at the 2018 European Curling Championships. There, the team had a disappointing performance, finishing with a 4-5 record, missing the playoffs.[3] At the 2019 Scottish Women's Curling Championships, the team qualified for the final but lost to Sophie Jackson 11-7.[4] In Grand Slam play, the team qualified for the playoffs in two of their three events with their best finish being at the Canadian Open where they lost in the semifinals.

In their first event of the 2019–20 season, Team Muirhead won the 2019 Cameron's Brewing Oakville Fall Classic.[5] They qualified for the playoffs at their next two events, the 2019 Stu Sells Oakville Tankard and the 2019 AMJ Campbell Shorty Jenkins Classic. Their next event was a month later where they lost the C qualifier game at the 2019 Curlers Corner Autumn Gold Curling Classic to Kim Eun-jung. The following week, they had a quarterfinal finish at the 2019 Canad Inns Women's Classic.
