Her email is cpaganelli@lgrliterary.com. Seems they allow multiple options to query: the form on their website, their general submission email, or to email the agent you seek directly.

Thank you for thinking of me for >> Book Title <<. I appreciate the opportunity to read your work. Unfortunately, I am not connecting with the narrative as strongly as I’d need to, to be the champion you deserve for this project. It’s such a subjective industry, I’m sure another agent will connect differently. Best of luck as you find the perfect agency home.
Warmly,
Courtney Paganelli
