The following question is determine whether or not

Hello:The following question is determine whether or not a Debtor qualifies for a chapter 7 case. The debtor received a discharge in a 7 in 2001. She later filed a 13 in 2009. She converted to 7 later in 2009, but her 7 was dismissed, voluntarily with court approval, in late 2009. Can she file a 7 now or is she stuck with a 13 because her last 7 was within the last 8 years. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
