In 1997 she won a $25,000 ITF tournament in Flensburg and that year reached her highest career ranking of 152 in the world.[2]

As a doubles player she made WTA Tour semi-finals at the 1999 Croatian Bol Ladies Open with Barbara Schwartz and Palermo in 2001 partnering Antonella Serra Zanetti. She won eight doubles titles on the ITF circuit.
