The walk from RJ gates to the international gates is 5-7 minutes at most -- usually less. I've found the FCO/MXP (and other non-hub Europe destinations) flights tend to be in the B30s range while the LHR/CDG/AMS flights are further down in the B20s making the walk even shorter.

Also note that if she misconnects at JFK for some reason, there is an AZ flight that leaves later that night that they would likely be able to easily accommodate her on or the late night AF/KL flights to CDG/KLM that could also get her there if necessary.
Note that some TATL flights don't operate on certain days around Thanskgiving weekend. That's partly why I suggested earlier that the OP check schedules and forumlate a list of Plan B options.
