She is a furrow spider of the genus Larinioides. I can't find too much about furrow spiders but I know that they hunt at night and are nocturnal orb weavers. They make a new web (after digesting the old one) every single night. They look ferocious and I think I would be upset if one bit me. But I don't think they are dangerous. I hope.
