If you view Jen's submission history over all time (the Timeline feature), there are 21 partial/full requests. Of those 21, only two indicate responses. She has a collection of requests, starting 11-2017, non of which has received a response. So if she has your submission, be aware she might not get back.

Personalized (and yet form) rejection with a generic and subjective reason for passing that's also complete opposite to what other agents have said, yet encouraging on me to keep on querying and try her again one day. Jen is awesome, though! One of the nicest and most caring agents I've ever met, classy, professional, and pretty cool. No regrets!
