Kind and personal rejection; showed she'd considered the materials. Useful info too. Thanks

Rejected in less than 24 hours, form rejection saying the word count was too high. Based on her previous full reqs, I would only submit if you have something <100k regardless of genre.

She's now open to queries: https://twitter.com/RedPenKaitlyn/status/1582714943702413315
Also heads up, she got married and her last name is Katsoupis, 'cause I definitely didn't realize and used Johnson while querying her this morning. Whoopsies, lesson learned.

Pitched at a conference in early May; requested 50 pages.
Requested the full on 5/29
Polite pass on 8/31, with details on what had taken her out of the story and general advice on where to look for other agents. I appreciated her feedback.
