Have you got defined on "sites and services of active directory" differents locations?

You need to define subnets and associate to multiple domain controllers.

If you wish what DC is loggin a user, only is possible if you audit security logins event. In event viewer, look ID 540.

to see what exchange server they are on, go to Tools\Account Settings select Microsoft Exchange and Change,.  It should say which server they are using

Not really much info here. Could you clarify the following please:

Are all the servers on the same domain or different ones?
Is there a link between sites (EG a VPN?)
Was the PC moved between sites in the past?
Do you have a DC /GC on the same site as the user who is logging on? if yes, is it replicating AD ok?

Finally, what makes you think she is logging onto the wrong server?

If you need to restrict each user to their own location. Then you to consider configure Active Directory sites and subnets

But the problem with different sites are the Replication. I forogt the default interval between sites I think it happens every two hours so new users modification will take time unless you manually force KCC replication

Also consider deploy Global Catalog at each site
