Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir,

It is very difficult to answer without having a look on the ECG, but I'll try to do my best.
From your description I consider that she had right bundle branch block on her ECG.
It means that heart impulses travel very slow in the righ ventricle, as they come from the left side, because their normal path doesn't work.
Sometimes it can be seen in healthy adults without any pathology. Anyway there is a need to visit a cardiologist to rule out heart pathology.
If she has no complaints, don't worry so much, most probably, there will be no problem.

Take care
