Junior career

As a junior, Tran played third for Team Jocelyn Peterman, playing with her since 2003. They represented Alberta at the 2011 Canada Winter Games, where they won a silver medal.[1] In 2012, the team won the Alberta junior championships and represented Alberta at the 2012 Canadian Junior Curling Championships, which they won. They represented Canada at the 2012 World Junior Curling Championships, losing in a tiebreaker.[2]

The next season, the team played in the 2012 Curlers Corner Autumn Gold Curling Classic, their first women's Grand Slam event, where they won just one game.[3] The team could not defend their Canadian Junior title, as they lost in a tiebreaker in the 2013 Alberta junior championship.[4] The team remained together for their final junior season in 2013–14. They played in the 2013 Curlers Corner Autumn Gold Curling Classic, losing all of their games.[5] Later in the year, they lost to Team Kelsey Rocque in the Alberta junior championship.

Women's career

In 2014, the Peterman rink went their separate ways when their junior careers ended. Tran joined up Team Casey Scheidegger, playing lead for the team for the 2014–15 season. On the World Curling Tour, they would win the Medicine Hat Charity Classic, and went 3–3 at the 2014 Curlers Corner Autumn Gold Curling Classic.[6] Later in the year they played in the 2015 Alberta Scotties Tournament of Hearts, Tran's first women's provincial championship. There, the team finished fourth, losing in the page 3 vs. 4 game to Chelsea Carey.[7]

In 2015, Tran joined the Geri-Lynn Ramsay rink, initially playing third for the team, but being moved to second between 2016 and 2018. The team played in the 2017 and 2018 Alberta Scotties Tournament of Hearts, losing in the page 3 vs. 4 game in 2017 (against Scheidegger)[8] and failing to make the playoffs in 2018.

In 2018, the Ramsay rink split up, and Tran joined Team Galusha. The team won the Royal LePage Women's Fall Classic tour event that season, and easily won the 2019 Northwest Territories Scotties Tournament of Hearts. Representing the Northwest Territories, Team Galusha finished the preliminary round of the 2019 Scotties Tournament of Hearts, Canada's national women's curling championship with a 3–4 record.
