Julie did provide a couple of paragraphs of feedback on my manuscript, but (bizarrely) she seemed to have totally misunderstood my writing. She offered a chance to resub, but I don't think she's the right agent for me, so I'll pass. I probably shouldn't be surprised, as her history is in Christian publishing, and with a lot of romance, and my MS is edgy, literary SF.

Query sent on January 10th, 2020.
Personal rejection with feedback!!! on the query and five pages on February 23, 2020. With an offer to resubmit if revised.

To say I was shocked to receive a detailed note is to say nothing. I've had three full requests, one of which an agent had had for almost six months, and neither of those agents provided anything but the same form rejection on the FULL. Ms. Julie Gwinn seems wonderful and kind. Out of dozens of agents, she's the only person who's provided actual feedback. I would definitely recommend submitting to her.

PR: 5/24/19 - Response came from Ms. Gwinn. Said she liked the concept and story but wasn't in love with the writing. No specifics on what she didn't like, just a suggestion to hone my craft more. Query included the first chapter.
