But apparently that was right when she was leaving an agency and starting her own? Should I resend?

Probably got lost in shuffle of transitioning to new agency. May resubmit.

Much belated update:
This agent never responded to the full. A few polite nudges after many months and nothing. I don't expect a response from a "no response means no" agent when it comes to queries. However, if material is requested, a response is polite - even if its a no.
My book was ultimately published. My current manuscript is about ready to query. Won't query someone like this again.

It has been 65 days since I sent the query. Looks like it is a pass. She only responds if interested according to other comments.
