Whilst investigating she slipped into the alternate realm (where the Aether was hidden by Bor's men) and it bonded itself to her.
I'm not understanding how this is any more "convenient" than Red Skull seeking out the Tesseract in Norway, Odin banishing Thor to Midgard to learn humility or Tony Stark being captured by the same Ten Ring insurgents as Yinsen.
Making Earth the center of the situation, while having a portal that leads to a place that is suppose to be impossible to find are just two examples.
