from humble beginnings as a junior hockey player at Kisumu Girls’ High school in form 1 third term, she ended up as the team’s captain while in form 2 being the youngest to lead the team to the nationals.  While playing as a defender. All the four years in high school, hockey was her game.

Joining CUK in the year 2014, this gave her exposure to join Amira Sailors which is sponsored by chase Bank. In early 2016 she was spotted by the national hockey team and called up to join the under 21 team taking up as the goalkeeper.  The U21 failed to go for the tournament they were to go.
