After high school, she enrolled at Northeastern University in Massachusetts. However, she transferred to St. Cloud State University in Minnesota. She graduated with a major in mass communications and a minor in business.

She registered her career-best moment when she stopped 52 shots in a match against Wisconsin Badgers, which was then the sixth-highest single game total in program history.
