I think she's a great age for it. I'm not a big believer in waiting for children to be fully "ready"/interested, whatever. We trained our daughter at 19 months and she had no real clue about the potty before that (played around on her potty seat, but that was it). We just went straight to undies. IF you do that, and then wait for them to start having an accident to move them there, then they get what it's for much more easily than if you sit them there waiting for something to come out. If your daughter is frightened, though, I would DEFINITELY get a stand-alone potty chair. You can get the Target brand for around ten bucks. My girls both started on that and then soon after preferred the ring on the big toilet.
