    Welcome to the forums.

    Please note my corrections to your post.

    We say 'she has been working' if she still does work there, and 'she worked' if she no longer does.

    You could use "till" as well as "to."

    Or you could say "... between [date] and [date]".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
