"I found the concept and world behind this piece to be fascinating and fresh," but she didn't connect with my main character or writing the way she needs to.

Kelly sent a very nice, encouraging rejection and added that her PB list is quite heavy right now.

I suspect that this is a form response meant to look like a personal response. Hard to say for sure, but it mentions no specifics and that's usually a sign that an agent is trying to BS you:

"I really enjoyed the concept behind this piece, but unfortunately, I wasn't quite pulled in like I needed to be, and so I must pass on this. It's clear that you put a lot of time and effort into your writing, and I know that the query process can be arduous. Please know that there are lots of agents out there, and everyone's tastes are different. While nothing is certain in this business, persistence does tend to pay off. Again, thank you for considering me and best of luck with your future queries."

Online form query: 01/17/20
Rejection: 02/02/20 - kind rejection saying she enjoyed the concept, but pages didn't pull her in. I would recommend querying this agent. She seems like a very nice person!
