She is now back on the agency website. Looks like they were reorganizing a little (the agents are now listed in alphabetical order by last name) and her bio/wishlist has been updated.

Queried this agent on Nov 20, 2019. I haven't heard anything after 93 days. Wonder if no response means no interest.
Nudge 2-21-20.
