The 26-year-old fired eight birdies and scored only one bogey in an impressive opening round to finish seven runs at 65 at Wildfire Golf Club.
The Surrey-born player, who made her debut in February, is one of five players sitting a stroke from the leadership of the French Celine Boutier.
Boutier played cards for eight birds without dropping a shot on the first day.
English couple Georgia Hall and Bronte Law are three among them, with Jodi Ewart Shadoff and Scotland & Gemma Dryburgh one step further back.
