After graduating from Saint Mary's College, where she received her Master's degree, she took up bobsledding as a brakewoman. She and her sledding partner, Shauna Rohbock, proceeded to become a duo to contend with at the international level. They won a sliver medal at the 2006 Olympic Winter Game in Italy. In her eight year career, Fleming won 91 World Cup medals, three World Championship medals, and an Olympic Silver medal.
