Hi, welcome to justanswer.com! My name is Mike.

I am going over your question and I will be with you shortly.

Expert:  Mike replied 11 months ago.

Just sign out of your iCloud account and have her sign in with her Apple ID in Settings / iCloud

Expert:  Mike replied 11 months ago.

Then go to Settings / Messages tap Send and Receive that is where that is listed.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Okay...so I do not have to create a new one for her, since she is linked to my account with her other ID?
Expert:  Mike replied 11 months ago.

I'm not sure what you mean if they are separate Apple IDs everything is separate.

Expert:  Mike replied 11 months ago.

She should sign in with the same Apple ID that she uses on her phone.
