I ended up going with a different agent, but this was a really tough call. Jennifer had some really amazing ideas for the book, and she has a long history in the industry that will make her such a good advocate for anyone she signs. Good luck to all querying writers - she's amazing.

In response to some of the other comments: I've been waiting since Oct. after a full request. On twitter, she said she replied to all requested material. I nudged her once and didn't get a reply, but I'm thinking the email might have ended up in spam. I might try a second nudge, but honestly, I think nudging too much just annoys agents and shows them your impatient, and there is a lot of waiting involved in this industry... I'm always trying to find a balance between making sure I'm not ignored and pestering people.

Website says they respond within 4 weeks if interested. Jennifer seems to ask for manuscripts really quickly so I'm closing this.

I've now queried Jennifer two different manuscripts that both seem to fit what she's looking for but have had no response. Looking at the stats she seems like an agent who requests a full on the day she receives the query, or it's a no, so after a month, I'm sadly closing this one out.

Brianna, just chiming in to say that I, too, got a partial request in October and have heard nothing since. So you're not alone.

I sent a query in October '18 and received a partial within a few days. Sent the partial the same day requested. She was very communicative during that process, then radio silence. Nudged once in December (received an encouraging response) and again in late January (heard nothing) and lastly in March (still nothing). I haven't nudged again and don't plan to. I think she is probably a really good agent to have and seems to respond quickly to the things she's interested in.

N1: 12/10/18 - told she was still considering and would be in touch very soon.
N2: 1/30/19 - nothing
N3: 3/12/19 - nothing
CNR 4/30/19 - it's been six months with the partial, so I'm gonna go ahead and say it's a pass. :)

@dorrie6 @lonna70 thanks! I was getting worried that my partial had somehow ended up in the wrong place -- whew!

@parker, I didn't get any confirmation when I queried back in October or when I sent the partial she requested, so I think she both doesn't use an autoreply and doesn't confirm receipt of submissions.
