Kiick has won five singles titles and one doubles title on the ITF Women's Circuit. In September 2014, she reached her career-high singles ranking of world No. 136. In May 2014, she peaked at No. 214 in the doubles rankings.

Between August 2015 and May 2017, she did not play in any ITF tournaments. She was sidelined during this time because she was diagnosed with stage-II-skin cancer (melanoma) and severe knee injuries that caused her to be out for a total of three years and two months. She also was diagnosed with mononucleosis.[1]

Her father is Jim Kiick, a former NFL running back for the Miami Dolphins.[2]
