Give her a nice 15-30 min soak in warm but not hot water, if things are uncomplicated the shed should come off by itself. Don't pull the skin off yourself. Also give her a moist hide in her enclosure - a snake sized hide filled with damn sphagnum moss is always a good way to go with you have a snake with shedding problems.

Also provide some rough edges for her to rub against, that will help her pull it off. Most of the time, like Jill says, it's a problem with humidity. Just let it come off naturally, if some pieces stick, don't worry too much about it unless they start to develop additional problems. It'll come off in the next shed.
