Talbot began her career at just the age of 17, playing with the Adelaide Lightning for the 2011–12 WNBL season. In just her second season, Talbot was recognised as one of the brightest prospects in the Women's National Basketball League (WNBL), winning the 2013 Betty Watson Rookie of the Year award. In accepting her award, Talbot was asked what she had learned from playing with Olympians Suzy Batkovic, Laura Hodges and Jennifer Screen, and she replied "Shitloads".
In 2019, it was announced Talbot would re-join the Adelaide Lightning, returning to both her home state and her first WNBL team.
In 2020, Talbot re-signed with the Adelaide Lightning for her second consecutive season.
In 2014, Talbot nominated for the WNBA draft, where she was selected in the third round (33rd overall) by the Phoenix Mercury. Talbot opted to play for the Canberra Capitals for the WNBL 2014-15 season. In 2017, the Phoenix Mercury re-acquired Talbot.
After electing to sit-out the 2020 season, Talbot's rights remained with the Liberty. In February 2021, the Liberty traded their negotiating rights to the Seattle Storm. Talbot would subsequently sign a training camp contract with the Storm.
