Georges made her debut on the ITF Women's Circuit in November 2006 in a $10k tournament in Le Havre; she only played the singles event and was eliminated in the singles qualifying second round. Her next tournament was in November 2007 in a $50k tournament in Deauville, France (it was the only tournament that she played in 2007); she only played the singles event and was eliminated in the singles qualifying first round. In 2008, she played (only the singles events of) five tournaments (all of them in France and four of them in the last four months of the year) on the ITF Circuit.[1]

From 2009 onwards, Georges started to play more regularly; she played in the singles events of 23 tournaments on the 2009 ITF Women's Circuit.[1]

Georges made her WTA Tour doubles debut at the 2010 Internationaux de Strasbourg after receiving a main-draw wild card; she and her partner Émilie Bacquet lost in the first round to the top-seeded pair of Chuang Chia-jung and Lucie Hradecká 1–6, 3–6.[1]
