In 2004, the inaugural season of the NPF, Iancin played second base for the league champion New York/New Jersey Juggernaut. Iancin has started at second base the last three seasons for the Riptide, and took home another championship ring in 2006, becoming one of two NPF players to receive two championship rings in her professional career. The year prior, the former Golden Bear was named the NPF Defensive Player of the Year.
When not playing professionally, Iancin was the head coach of the 18U East Coast Starlites out of Flemington, NJ, while also serving as the Director of Softball Operations at the Jack Cust Baseball Academy in 2004.

Prior to playing professionally in the U.S., she was recruited to play overseas in Italy for Team Bussolengo. Upon her return to the states, Iancin became the head coach for the Berkeley High School softball team in Berkeley, CA.
As a 2001 graduate of the University of California-Berkeley, she was named First Team All Pac-10 at second base as a senior. She finished her career at Cal ranked among the career leaders in several offensive categories including hits, homeruns, doubles, and batting average.
