Her job was to help setup lopsided bets between sport figures for her bookie friend, Gus. Roy won that challenge but paid the price by costing Gus so much money.

She jumped out of the window, probably out of the guilt of shooting Roy and all the other atheletes that received silver bullets from her gun on behalf of working with Gus. (If you backtrack everything about Sam Simpson, Roy's friend on the train, she probably got him too. Remember, Sam died before Max Mercy could get the whole story on Roy and Max wanted the story the next day on the train. Sam went to bed early because he "wasn't feeling well".
