Im new to this, but that is a pretty good looking swing. The two things that stuck out to me is #1 right after contact she is not extending fully through the ball and almost slightly rolling her wrists. #2 her front foot is opening up to much to soon.
Look at this clip to compare.

You will see that Manny gets full weight transfer, extends all of the way through the zone thus getting full power at contact.

I think we are seeing some of the same things. I agree about the front foot. I'd rather see the pelvis open the foot. The extension stuff you are talking about I suggest would vary with pitch location.
