Boyd's main responsibilities include working with the Hurricane infield and coaching at 1st base.

While at LHHS, she doubled the Wildcats win total from her first season to her second. In 2005, Lake Highlands had more wins than in the previous three years combined. Three of Boyd's players earned spots on the all-city team, as well as one earning a spot on the all-conference team.

Boyd played collegiately at the University of Nebraska, where she helped lead the Cornhuskers to three Big 12 titles and a Women's College World Series appearance as a four-year starter at first base.

One of the best defensive players in school history at NU, she boasted a .992 career fielding percentage, committing just 14 errors in 1,859 chances.

While at Nebraska, Boyd was a four-time member of the Academic All-Big XII First-Team. In 2001, she was a Verizon Academic All-American and a finalist for the Nebraska Student-Athlete of the Year Award. A three-time member of the All-Big XII softball team, she served as team captain as a junior and senior and was selected to the All-Midwest Region Softball Team in 2000. In addition to earning the Student-Athlete of the Year award during her career, Boyd was also named Most Valuable Player, Best Defensive Player and Most Improved Player while in Lincoln.
