Harli graduated from Sullivan High School, where she played 4 years of softball, before beginning her collegiate career at NEO, where she was a two-year starter.

I was named to the NJCAA National Softball All-Tournament team in 2015. That team finished as an NJCAA runner-up as the Lady Norse went 50-16 on the year.

Harli ended her collegiate career with the RSU Hillcats in 2017, after one season at NCAA Division I Southeast Missouri State.
