Like most other speedy metal players, she doesn't play hard. That is what microphones are for, as well as triggers. Some folks have expressed a distaste for triggers on kicks but it can be very hard to get a bass drum sound powerful enough to be heard over the rest of the group without them. The Axis pedals are also very efficient so you don't have to play them that hard to get a good kick sound. The whole 'mass versus inertia' thing...
