2015- I'd submitted to her - women's fiction- but I received other representation before she got to my query. When I rescinded my query, she got back to me with regrets for missing the oppty.
2020- I'm searching for a new agent for the same title, re-queried. She responded in 24 business hours noting that her list had changed and recommending a couple of colleagues. Very nice and helpful!

Query was Aug 12 19. I resent on October 22 out of concern of expletives dumping my queries into the abyss.
