Running or getting a walking start to hit a serve, from your description, is also illegal. In "old school" tennis you were not allowed to break the plane of the service line, while in the air, as is allowed by the present rules.

I'm not going to straighten anyone out. She will need to resolve it herself.
Interesting about the prior rule that you couldn't break the plane of the baseline. That rule is about as dumb as telling people they cannot make contact on the other side of an invisible plane, but they can follow through on the other side.
