Potter began playing rugby at the University of New Mexico after playing basketball in high school and was selected to the Women’s Junior All-Americans six months later. She continued through the High Performance Development Pathway until making her Women’s Eagles debut in 2007. Potter won bronze with the Women’s Eagles Sevens at Rugby World Cup Sevens 2013 in Moscow, Russia, and represented the Eagles at Women's Rugby World Cup 2014 in France. Potter missed the 2014-15 Women's Sevens Series due to being diagnosed with stage III synovial sarcoma, but beat the illness and returned to the Olympic Training Center ahead of the 2015-16 Series. Playing in 22 of the team's 29 matches, Potter worked her way back into the starting role she held before her absence, and was named to the 12-player Team USA squad for Rugby Sevens' debut at the Rio 2016 Olympic Summer Games.
