"Keep on pushing her luck" may be close to the definition of "Pester" which defines as " to try to persuade someone by asking them something several times ", according to Longman Dictionary. Add an "er" and you can call him a "Pesterer".
"Keep pushing her luck" could also be construed as someone who is trying to take advantage as much as possible from a person or situation, and the adjectival word to describe someone as that is exploitative.
