Well, I do have an option for her, but the problem is that the wait timefor this visa is several years. The good news is that if she is approved, she will be a permanent resident when she arrives in the US, and will get her green card
within 4 to 6 weeks. But the bad news, again, is that the wait time is about 5 years, 4 months. Here is information on this EB-3 employment-based immigrant visa
Now if she can come to the US in some other status, say a student visa, then she might be able to remain on the student visa during those 5 years, and then when the time comes, she can apply for the adjustment of status to a green card. But there is no visa that would allow her to come to the US to work in the capacity that you described, and to remain here for those 5 years.
There are training visas that might be available, but the problem is that she must be able to show that there is a shortage of places to learn the trade she seeks to train in, and that the country she is from needs trained people in that trade, and that she will return to that country at the end of her permitted stay in order to perform that trade. The training visa I have in mind is the H-3 training visa: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.eb1d4c2a3e5b9ac89243c6a7543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=8d500b89284a3210VgnVCM100000b92ca60aRCRD&vgnextchannel=8d500b89284a3210VgnVCM100000b92ca60aRCRD
There is one last option, but it is good for only 1 year at a time, and it will require her to show that there are no qualified, willing or able US workers for the position, that she is only needed for a short duration, and that her working in this capacity in the US is in the interests of the US. This is called the H2B temporary, non-agricultural non-immigrant visa: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.eb1d4c2a3e5b9ac89243c6a7543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=d1d333e559274210VgnVCM100000082ca60aRCRD&vgnextchannel=d1d333e559274210VgnVCM100000082ca60aRCRD
These appear to be the only options she has available at this time, I'm afraid. I really wish there were better options, but the US government does not make it very easy for people to come to the US to work, especially when the economy is so bad and so many Americans are looking for work.
