She posted this on Twitter on Jan 5:
Hey all, I’m officially going on hiatus/bereavement leave beginning today for the rest of January.

I’m not closing to submissions because I want to have lots of goodies to read when I come back, but for those querying, please be patient!

"Thank you for including me in your agent queries. Unfortunately, your project does not sound like a fit for me at this time, and so I will have to pass.
I wish you all the best in your endeavor."

@writingclouds The biggest facepalm in the world. I searched all over their site and didn't think to check actual querytracker. Thank you!

@Mossie if you click on "Clients" you'll get a list of people she represents (or has represented in the past)

Does anyone know who Laura represents? Or what books she's sold? I'm a patron of their podcast and everything, but I still can't figure it out.

QM: 6/3/20
FR: 10/6/20 - (woo!) sent same day. Querytracker had auto-CNR'd her, but I guess she's working through that backlog. :)
ER: 11/12/20 - short, polite, customized rejection. Bummer, she seemed like she'd be fun to work with.
