Bobbi began playing softball in her rural community east of Red Deer in a mixed league. In 1988, she changed directions to play for the Peewee team in Red Deer. In 1990, Bobbi’s team went undefeated at provincials leading them to represent Alberta at the Bantam Westerns. There Bobbi had her first experience at a post-provincial championship where she won a bronze medal with the Elks Bluebirds. Bobbi’s athleticism and development in softball earned her a spot on the 1993 Team Alberta Women’s Softball team for Canada Summer Games in Kamloops, BC.

As Bobbi transitioned into Junior levels, her talent was getting noticed and she was presented with the opportunity to play softball at the university level. As a multisport athlete already playing basketball for Red Deer College, she was familiar with post-secondary level student athlete commitments. She could not pass up the opportunity to do the same with softball, so she headed to Oklahoma City University (OCU).

From 1994-1998, Bobbi was an essential part of the OCU softball team. Her versatility was unmatched, as she is the only player in OCU history who has played every position. During her time there, the OCU Chiefs won the NAIA national title 3 times (1995, 1996, 1997). She is a 2 time All American player and holds 2 NAIA tournament hitting records: total bases in one game (8) and 2 home runs in one game. During the summers away from OCU, Bobbi would come back to Alberta to play Junior ball, adding multiple Provincial Championships and Canadian Championship appearances to her resume.

In 1998, Bobbi was noticed by the National Team program and for 2 years she trained and developed her softball skills even further with Team Canada Elite, a development team. She participated with the Elite in Canada Cup. Bobbi’s next 6 years, from 2000-2005, she was part of the Calahoo Erins Senior Women, coached by Dave Bumstead & Ron Masuda. During that time the Erins won 5 Provincial Championships, a Silver at Canadians (2001) and a Bronze at Canadians (2003). In 2002, Bobbi was awarded All Star Player award at Canadians.

In 2003, Bobbi began her coaching career, joining the team and her former coach back at Oklahoma City University. She still coaches at OCU and during this chapter of her career, she has added National titles in 2007, 2016 and 2017 to the OCU Softball program’s history. She has also helped coach several players to achieve numerous All-American awards, Players of the Year awards and National Team placements. Her coaching efforts show, as her team staff have won the NAIA Coaching Staff of the Year award 3 times. She is one of the most respected and knowledgeable hitting coaches in Oklahoma and continues to teach and mentor young players
