While the default behavior of a Windows 2003 Terminal Server should be to use the same default printer as the client I will be the first to admin there is some quirkiness there.  To hardwire it you can try the following:

Add a small batch file to the startup folder in her profile that resets the default printer.  Here is the syntax:

prnmngr -t -p "\\server\printer"

Let me know if this helps or if you need clarification
