She began her professional road running career in 2013 and won the Darıca Half Marathon. A marathon debut followed at the 2014 Milan Marathon, which she won in a time of 2:28:40 hours. She had two more high-profile wins that year, topping the podium at the Gifu Seiryu Half Marathon and the Lisbon Marathon, setting personal bests of 70:53 minutes and 2:26:47 hours along the way.

She entered the top level 2015 Paris Marathon and made the top three with a run of 2:24:44 hours. This earned her her first international selection. At the start of 2016 she dropped out of her first marathon (failing to finish the distance at the Nagoya Women's Marathon), but then rebounded with a win at the Paris Marathon.
