FYI: I queried this agent on 6/17/21 and haven't received a reply. The agency website states a 1-3 week turnaround so I sent what I hope was a gentle nudge. An assistant replied letting me know that my query is still under consideration and that they are a bit backed up. So if you haven't heard from Kristin and it's past their 3-week mark, she is likely still considering.
