As a junior curler, Kaufmann played in two World Junior Curling Championships. At the 2007 World Junior Curling Championships she played second for the Swiss team, skipped by Sandra Zurbuchen. The team wrapped up the round robin tournament with a 5-4 record, in a three-way tie for fourth place. The team had to play in two tie-break matches to make the playoffs. They won their first match by beating Norway's Kristin Moen Skaslien, but they lost in the second tie-breaker to Scotland's Sarah Reid. Kaufmann returned as second for the Swiss junior team at the 2009 World Junior Curling Championships, which was skipped by Martina Baumann this time. The team finished the round robin with a 7-2 record, tied with Scotland for first place. The team lost to Scotland's Eve Muirhead in their first playoff match, and then lost in the semi-final to Canada's Kaitlyn Lawes. The team then won the bronze medal game, against Russia's Margarita Fomina.

Kaufmann would join the Feltscher-Beeli rink in 2011, and the team would represent Switzerland at the 2011 European Curling Championships. The team finished the round robin with a 3-6 record, in 7th place. The team would not represent Switzerland again until the 2014 Ford World Women's Curling Championship. Along the way however, the team won two World Curling Tour events, the 2013 Glynhill Ladies International and the 2013 Red Deer Curling Classic. At her first World Championships in 2014, Kaufmann won her first world title with Feltscher after defeating Canada in the final.
