Just looked her agency's website. It says she's closed to queries. See the line next to her name in this link.

Polite step-aside: 7/26

"Thanks very much for the update, and congratulations on your offer! Unfortunately, I will be stepping aside on this project. I wish you the best of success, and I look forward to seeing the deal announcement in the near future!"

Seems like a great agent. Hopefully she reopens queries soon for the rest of you! :)

Profile Update: Closed to queries.

(Thanks Belomar. Although their agent's page says she is open to queries, the information you found seems more accurate.)

I queried on 5/10 and have yet to hear back. But taking a look at the data, it looks like rejections from April have recently gone out, as well as some of April still having not yet been rejected. I wouldn't nudge just yet.
