Hunkin skips one of the top teams in the province. Since forming her rink in 2008, she has won four WCT events: the 2010 Meyers Norris Penny Charity Classic, the 2011 Boundary Ford Curling Classic, the 2012 Iron Trail Motors Shoot-Out and the 2013 Avonair Cash Spiel. Her team were also runners up at the 2010 Red Deer Curling Classic.

Hunkin played in her first Grand Slam event at the 2011 Players' Championship where her team won just one game, failing to qualify for the playoffs. The next season, she played in two Grand Slam events. At the 2011 Curlers Corner Autumn Gold Curling Classic she won just won match before being eliminated and at the 2011 Manitoba Lotteries Women's Curling Classic her team failed to win a single game. The next season, Team Hunkin did much better at the 2012 Curlers Corner Autumn Gold Curling Classic where they won four matches, before being eliminated in a qualifier game against Laura Crocker. At the 2012 Manitoba Lotteries Women's Curling Classic the team won three games before being eliminated and at the 2012 The Masters Grand Slam of Curling she won just one game. Hunkin's rink began the 2013-14 Grand Slam season by being eliminated after losing their first three games at the 2013 Curlers Corner Autumn Gold Curling Classic.

Provincially, Hunkin has played in two provincial championships. At the 2011 Alberta Scotties Tournament of Hearts she and her team were eliminated after winning two matches. The 2012 Alberta Scotties Tournament of Hearts was much more successful for the team. They won the A qualifier, by winning four straight games, and then they won their first page playoff match up against Heather Nedohin. However, Nedohin won her semi-final and faced off against Kaufman in the provincial final, and prevailed, beating her 8-5 and going on to win the national championship and a bronze medal at the world championships. At the following season's provincial Tournament of Hearts, her rink would be eliminated from contention after a 3-3 record.

She married Derek Hunkin in 2016.
