Children are like elastic bands when it comes to separation anxiety. The best thing you can do is to "practice". Leave her in the care of someone else and gradually increase the amount of time that you're away from her. You can even do this at home: have her play in a gated area with you then tell her you're going to do X. Go do something quick in another part of the house then come back. Give her praise for playing on her own/with the person you've left her with. She may cry when you come back but it's only because at this age, it's the only way she knows to express the emotion of having missed you.
