Armstrong's first national level event was at the 2012 Canadian Junior Curling Championships. There, she skipped her team to a 5-7 round robin record. In 2014, she represented UNB at the 2014 CIS/CCA Curling Championships where her team went 1-6.
Out of juniors, Armstrong joined the Melissa Adams rink at third. They competed in local World Curling Tour events with their best finish at the WFG Jim Sullivan Curling Classic where they won the title. At the 2016 New Brunswick Scotties Tournament of Hearts, the team made it all the way to the final where they just came up short to Team Robichaud.
The following season, the Adams rink returned to the provincial championship. After going 4-2 in the round robin, the team won the tiebreaker and the semi-final to advance to the final. There, they scored four points in the sixth end en route to a 9-6 win. It was just Armstrong's second provincial appearance. At the Hearts, the team would have to win the pre-qualifying event to qualify for the main draw. After going 3-0 in the round robin portion, they came up short in the final against Northwest Territories Kerry Galusha.
Adams left the team after the season to join the Robichaud rink. Armstrong stepped up to skip with Cathlia Ward playing third, Katie Forward remaining at lead and Jillian Babin coming in to play second. At provincials, the team lost in the semi-final to Sarah Mallais.
After Ward moved to skip her own team in Newfoundland and Labrador, the team brought on veteran Andrea Crawford to skip the team with Armstrong sliding down to second. At the 2019 New Brunswick Scotties Tournament of Hearts, Team Crawford posted a perfect 5-0 record en route to capturing the title. At the Hearts, the team went 3-4, missing the playoffs.
To start the 2019–20 curling season, Team Crawford won their first two events, the Steele Cup Cash and the Atlantic Superstore Monctonian Challenge. Armstrong also got to compete in her first Grand Slam event, the 2019 Tour Challenge Tier 2. After a 2-2 round robin record, they lost the tiebreaker to Jestyn Murphy.
