In Virginia I would recommend Springfield, Burke or Lorton - all three area offers great commute into DC. With a budget of $275k you should be able to get a nice three level townhouse - 3bdrm, 2bath, nice backyard, etc...

In Maryland you maybe Silver Spring will work.

To make it 35 minutes to DC from Gainsville, she would have to leave her house before sunrise

That's the problem with the DC area--a 45 minute ride may only be 8-10 miles away--and that housing budget won't go far so close to the city.
Traffic in and around the N. Va. area is horrendous--not enough road for the number of cars!
