yes but you will need to add the account to the Remote Desktop users group.

There are a few ways. If you go to My Computer Properties > Remote there will be a place to add the user to allowed Remote Desktop. This will automatically add her to the Remote Desktop user group.

Or you could go into Computer Management -> Local Users and edit it there.
