She started her career at Höttur, had a spell at Selfoss, but it was at Breidablik that she made a name for herself and won titles. 

"I always dreamed of playing overseas. Benfica is one of the biggest clubs in the world and it is an honor for me to be here. Benfica's women's football team has been competing for four years now. They were champions last season and were able to play in the Champions League", she praised.
