Born in Mexico City, Mexico, Noyola moved to Palo Alto, California at a very young age.  She played for the U.S. National Team  at the U-16, U-17, U-18 and U-20 teams.  At the age of 20 she decided to play for her birth country and became a member of the Mexican National Team.  She made her debut for Mexico on Dec. 15th against the Netherlands in a Four-Nations Cup in Brazil.  She played in two matches in the 2011 Women’s World Cup.

She attended Stanford University from 2008-2012.  At Stanford she played 102 matches, starting 95.  She capped off her collegiate career by heading in the game-winning goal of the 2012 National Championship to give Stanford a 1-0 victory over Duke.  She was named the 2012 Hermann’s Trophy winner, NSCAA All American and was also an ESPY nominee for Best Female College Athlete.
