Yes, she is using the same account on QueryManager. She just changed the agency associated with it. So, if you queried her with QM when she was with her previous agency, your query moved with her. And, as droideka stated, you can still use the "Contact" menu to reach her.

@DrAshleyNova I had a query with Tamara before she moved agencies, and when I nudged through her QT she responded back. I think it's the same form, but with different wording. so if it's been a long time you could probably nudge through the message function

I had a full out with Tamara before she changed agencies, and I haven't gotten any replies via query manager about whether she's still got it. Not sure if I should resubmit via the new form or try to reach out another way?

Thanks bradleys5235. I've been waiting for her name to appear on the Defiore website and make it official before I change her profile. But they seem to be taking their time about it.
