    this is a exreamly submissive and terror reaction, you may find that it takes a bit of time to get used to you.
    do you know how she was treated before you got her.?
    try ignoring her and making no eye conyact when you go in the room and having a piece of food in you hand and placing it near you. then progress slowly until she will take it from you still no eye contact.
    once she has accepted you as pack leader she will know that she does not need to fear you.
    hope this helps!
