[redacted*] And unless you reset the dérailleur limits she runs the risk of throwing the chain; the brifter will offer a gear that isn't there.
*Edit: Didn't notice that you proposed to move the dérailleur too. Still the problem w/ the brifters, though.
12-27 with a compact crank is pretty low gearing. Try it and see. If she really needs more then seriously consider a triple.
