Very nice personalized response, but she did not feel she was the right agent to represent my work.

Has anyone met this agent, talked to her, or know anything about her reputation? I know she and a client were embroiled in controversy several years ago when they were (I think?) down-voting bad reviews on GoodReads, or something like that. I am on the fence about whether to query her. Any info helps! Thanks.
