Contents

Troche was born in AsunciĆ³n. She attended Auburn University in the United States, and was a two time All-American. She was the co-medalist at the 2001 U.S. Women's Amateur.

Troche turned professional in 2003 and has played on the LPGA Tour since then, but has struggled to hold on to full LPGA Tour status so she has had to spend time on the Futures Tour. In 2007, Troche and her Paraguay team partner Julieta Granada won the Women's World Cup of Golf.

She graduated from Springwood School and returned to teach Spanish in later years.
