My girlfriend is probably just below you on skill, not quite intermediate. Last season she rode a Rome Jett. She liked it, except in ice. Rome has quickrip tech that helps with turns and ice, so i am not sure if the tech sucks or it was her skill level.
other then the boards you looked at i'd add these to the mix:
NS Infinity(ordered one for my gf), more all mountain but will be fine in the park
NS Pandora, more park oriented
Arbor push, more of an all mountain board, directional, but awesome board.
For size, I think between 151-154, depending where you will spend your time, shorter for park. Most women specific boards are just a little softer. So, keep in mind a 154 men's board is expecting a bit bigger rider then you. But that isn't a huge deal, just something to keep in mind.
