Lettiere was raised in Vero Beach, Florida, before moving to Sunrise, Florida in 1990 to train at the local tennis academy.[1] She finished her schooling at St. Thomas Aquinas High School and went on to attend the University of Georgia.[2] In 1994 she was a member of Georgia's NCAA championship winning team and claimed the NCAA singles championship, beating UCLA's Keri Phebus in the final.[3]

On her WTA Tour main draw debut in 1994, Lettiere had an upset world number 32 Katerina Maleeva at Stratton Mountain.[4] She received a wildcard to compete in the 1994 US Open, where she fell in the first round to Argentine qualifier María José Gaidano.[5]

It was as a doubles player that Lettiere had the most impact on the WTA Tour, reaching a best ranking of 40 in the world. In 1996 she teamed up with Nana Miyagi to a runner-up finish in Chicago's Ameritech Cup, which included a quarter-final win over second seeds Lindsay Davenport and Mary Joe Fernandez.[6]
