Email is not secure unless it is a closed system. So even if she emailed it to herself it could be vulnerable. Email traffic can travel thru many hands before reaching it's destination. If you want to risk that such sensitive info won't be skimmed off at any point at least realize it is a risk.

Thanks for reinforcing that and for the links you posted! Appreciate your help!
