Legal Question in Criminal Law in Michigan

My daughter received a dui in Iowa and now has a suspended license for 1 year in Iowa. She has only lived there for 6 months as does not have an Iowa license. She has a Michigan license which they did not take from her. Is she allowed to drive in Michigan?
