Is she over bowed? Can she draw the bow with it pointing at a downward angle and bring it to target? Her draw length is too long.

Without a doubt WAYYYYY to long on the draw. That is a great place to start, and would help with other things as well.

Ditto on the draw length. There definitely needs to be a significant adjustment made there. At that point you have a platform for any additional modifications that need to be made.

Kisser button goes on the corner of the lip not the nose. Bring it down some after you get the draw length fixed.
