During a professional tennis career that spanned 1991-2000, Muric played for both Yugoslavia and Croatia. Together with Nadin Ercegovi?, Gorana Mati? and Maja Palaver?i? she was a member of the original Croatian Fed Cup team in 1992. In 1993, Muri? represented Croatia at the 1993 Mediterranean Games, where she claimed two gold medals, including one earned with doubles partner Silvija Talaja. With doubles partner Ingelise Driehuis, Muri? reached the quarterfinals at 1994 Wimbledon Championships.
Muri? represented Croatia in women's doubles at the 1996 Summer Olympics, where she and partner Iva Majoli reached the second round before losing to the Spanish team of Arantxa Sánchez Vicario and Conchita Martínez, 6-2, 6-1.
Muri? competed in all of women's tennis's Grand Slams from 1991-1999.
Muri?'s youth in a war-torn nation, combined with the opportunity for international travel provided by her tennis career, motivated her to become involved in charitable activities. She has spent 15 years working with the Little Star Foundation, a non-profit established by fellow former tennis professional Andrea Jaeger, serving as that organization's Treasurer. In 2006, she co-founded Humanitarian Wave, 501(c)3 non-profit organization focused on helping children and adults living in poverty, suffering from disease, abuse and neglect.
Muri? is now the manager of Galactic Unite, a philanthropic project of Virgin Galactic and Virgin Unite. In that position, she helps develop and manage "programmes that promote education in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, as well as entrepreneurship (STEM+)."
