Had a full request from her back in November 2020 after a Seymour open call
Nudged with an updated version in April 2021
Nudged on the nudge July 2021
Resubmitted in QM July 2021
Nudged with offer January 2022
...and finally gave up on her.
She was very personable and enthusiastic on our call but it was all downhill from there! Only query her if you don't mind being ghosted.

Based on what others have said here, it's probably best not to consider her.

I looked at her timeline. She ghosted all the partials and fulls she requested in the last year. Writers should stop querying agents like that so she'll get the message.

From their web site: "We make a conscious effort to reply to every query we receive. If you do not receive a request for additional materials within three weeks, you should assume that we are not interested in that particular project."
