In August 2013, Sørensen joined Swedish club FC Rosengård.

In February 2015, Sørensen returned to Denmark to play for Brøndby IF for more playing time and to catch up with her studies.[3] In July 2017, it was announced that Sørensen would be making her return to Damallsvenskan to play for the reigning champions, Linköpings FC.[4]

In July 2020, she left Brøndby to move to England, signing a two-year contract with Everton F.C. in the Women's Super League.[5]

After showing impressive form with Brøndby, Sørensen was called up to be part of the senior Danish national team for the 2016 Yongchuan International Tournament of China in October 2016. She was a replacement for the injured Nadia Nadim.[6] In 2017, she was named to the Danish UEFA Women's Euro 2017 squad.
