The same thing happened to me with a cat that I took in, I'm pretty sure the reason is that some cats prefer to do their business on a smooth surface rather than in a gritty pebbly box. It might sound silly but after I tried EVERYTHING even special litter that is supposed to attract cats this is what I came up with
My grandpas cat would do that all the time and poop in the tub, after a while he just gave up trying to train the cat so he closed bathroom doors so the cat would go in closets or in bedrooms after a few months he turned the cat in to an outdoor cat/ garage.

I think it because she feels uncomfortable in the area where you put her litter box. If you put in a place that has no privacy she won't use it, since cats like their privacy when doing their business. You could also try putting a litter box in your bath tub when you're not using it and see if she uses it.
