I am a little thrown off by the request for an outline and a resume. I assume that's a synopsis... and a resume.

Susan took me as a client immediately upon reading my proposal for my NF (70k) book just before the pandemic with glowing feedback. (Red flags should have been no website and that she "doesn't do phone calls".) But she was generally responsive on email. Things were slow w COVID so I didn't push too hard, but we were in touch every few weeks to talk planning. After nine months as publishing opened up I nudged and was a bit surprised to get a form rejection as if I was a cold submission and not a client of almost a year. In the end it was a blessing. I got an amazing agent a month later and a 'good' deal with a major publisher. People get dropped, but she handled it unprofessionally IMO.

She bailed on me without comment after suggesting a rewrite and saying she'd read it again. Never heard back after reminders from me. Be suspicous.
