Sure some pros even hit with different grips, but to me you are better off stacking the odds and going with a more traditional grip.

To answer your question, it will be hard for her to hit her FH with pace and to avoid injury as she moves into the older age divisions. Look at Sofia Kenin in the picture below her - same grip but completely different forehand mechanic. My daughter has the exact grip and if she wants to avoid future injuries, she needs to get her elbow behind the racquet at the contact point
