She can only get you a work visa if she can show that there are no US citizens willing or able to do the job. Unlikely that she can do that. If she has the money to support you, you could come for up to half a year on a B2 tourist visa. You are not allowed to work on that, but you can visit.

She can sponsor you but a sibling sponsorship can take up to 10 years. Or if you have a degree in engineering she can sponsor you for an H-1B visa right away.
