native and graduate of St. Petersburg College, to the Detroit Shock on May 12, 1999. She sat out the 1999 season, but joined Detroit as a reserve during the 2000 and 2002 campaigns. The Shock waived her on June 21, 2002 and the Phoenix Mercury
signed her as a free agent on July 17, 2002 where she finished out the year. She has not played in the WNBA since, but she did compete in the 2002 FIBA World Championship
