Hallet was a carded athlete from 1989 to 1993, and Senior National Team Member from 1989-1993. She represented Canada many times between 1988 and 1992, and finished the quadrennium as alternate on Canada's Olympic team. She was coached by Michel Arsenault & Valerie Oudin from 1985 to 1993.

Hallett was known for her power (vault, floor) and the amplitude of her release skills on bars. At the 1991 Hungarian Int't, Tatiana Gutsu's coach approached Hallett's coaches and referred to her Tkatchev as "the best I have ever seen." Gutsu herself went on to win the all-around competition at the 1992 Olympic Games.

Like many gymnasts, Hallett transitioned from elite gymnastics to Cirque du Soleil. She joined the troupe in 1993 and started out as the red bird in Mystere (Las Vegas, USA). Now she's with Cirque's La Nouba, a resident show out of Disney World. 

Halllett is now married and goes by her married name, Natasha Chao.
