She competed at the junior level in the IBU Cup (formerly the European Cup) beginning with the 2007/08 season, and in 2009 competed for the first time in the Junior World Championships at Canmore, where she came in 34th in the sprint, 33rd in pursuit and individual, and with Ingela Andersson and Marielle Molander, 9th in the relay.

She competed in the IBU women's championships for the first time in 2008 at Idre, coming 64th in her first sprint and in her next, in the same venue, achieving 53rd, her best placement in the event. At the start of the 2012/13 season she made her first appearance in the World Cup, in Östersund, where she came 88th in her first sprint.
