Estrada has had a decorated career as a former National Pool Player, coach at DePaul, soccer player at Santa Clara and working for Pleasanton Rage.
In the summer of 2013, Estrada was chosen for the NSCAA's (National Soccer Coaches Association of America) first 30-Under-30 program as part of a nationally select group of young coaches who want to lead the way in developing soccer players and enhancing the game.
The 30-Under-30 program is a year-long education and mentorship opportunity for a select few up-and-comers who have made soccer coaching their career of choice. The program was created to support promising young coaches and foster their growth at a crucial point in their vocation.
Estrada had joined the DePaul women's soccer program in 2008 as a graduate assistant. She concluded her collegiate career in 2007 as a four-time All-West Coast Conference honoree at Santa Clara University where she played for DePaul head coach Erin Chastain who was an assistant coach with the Broncos.

She led the Broncos to four NCAA Tournament appearances and four West Coast Conference Championships.Estrada topped the Broncos in scoring as a sophomore and junior before a knee injury forced her to sit out a season. She came back in 2007 as a senior with 11 points on five goals and an assist. She was second on the team with 42 shots and third in goals and points.
Estrada graduated from Santa Clara with a Communications degree. In high school, she was named a Parade All-American in 2002 and 2003 and played for the U17 National Team prior to her collegiate career.
