Worley made her World Cup debut at age 16 in February 2006, and finished in 29th place in a giant slalom in Ofterschwang, Germany. She finished in fifth place in the first race of the 2009 World Cup season, a giant slalom in Sölden, Austria, in October 2008. A month later she won her first World Cup race (and first podium) in a GS at Aspen, Colorado, US.

Two days after her eighth World Cup win, Worley was injured in a slalom in France on 17 December 2013. Caught on the tails of her skis in the first run at Courchevel, she tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee and also had some lateral meniscus damage. It ended Worley's 2014 World Cup season and kept her out of the 2014 Olympics.
