It depends if anything else is also feeding FX1 or if it’s just her vocal, how many spare FX engines/channels you’ve got, and how actively you can manage the signal as to whether you set it up pre/post, but here are some things you could try:

Adjust the level of the FX1Return in Mix 1.

or

Send her channel by itself to a spare FX unit, send that FX unit’s return exclusively to Mix1 at whatever level she wants. That way you have one FX for monitors, one for FOH.

or

Insert a spare FX unit across her channel: you’ll get reverb all the time everywhere that channel goes. Mix it for her monitor, hope it doesn’t get too out of control, then mix to FX1 for more verb FOH (if you need to. If you insert the FX on the channel you might find you don’t need as much in FOH.)

or

Y-split her channel to two separate preamps, use the first one exclusively for FOH as you’re doing now, use the second one exclusively for her monitor, and insert the FX across the second channel. Whatever verb settings she wants in her monitor wont affect FOH and vice versa.
