I have been a master mechanic for over 35 years and am happy to help you with this.

This sure has the symptom of the oil level being too low. When its low and you go around a corner, the oil in the engine goes to one side and wont be able to get sucked up the pickup tube in the bottom of the oil pan. The first thing she needs to do is add a quart of oil and then just take it in and have the oil changed if its 2000 miles overdue. I wouldnt be worried about any engine damage at this point but make sure she doesnt drive it much until she gets some oil put in it.
