If that seems like a quick CNR, her timeline shows she hardly ever responds to queries. At all.

Twitter feed posted 5/29 says her response time is now 6-8 weeks, not 4 as the website suggests.

EQ: 3/26/18
Nudged on June 22 and received a nice note that she was going out of town and would likely get back to me in mid-July. Nothing yet...
Still nothing....closing out...8/24/18
ER: 1/10/19 - Received a nice note saying that my writing was lovely, but that she was focusing more on non-fiction at the moment. Interesting....

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.
