    No, I understand that. What I don't understand is the way you use the verb 'hesitate'.
    To hesitate means to be slow to act, say or decide, to be reluctant to do something.

    What is she reluctant to do because of one's inability?

    Perhaps you can also say:
    She was hesitant about your ability to fulfil the job's responsibility/requirements.

    hesitant - undecided, doubtful.
